Honey-Glazed Chicken Drumsticks

  1. 18 chicken drumsticks
  2. 2 1/4 teaspoons salt
  3. 2 1/4 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
  4. 2 1/4 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
  5. 4 garlic cloves, minced
  6. 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  7. 3 tablespoons Asian sesame oil
  8. Vegetable oil, for the grill
  9. 6 tablespoons honey, warmed
  1. Make 3 crosswise slashes down to the bone on the meaty part of each drumstick. Put the chicken in a large shallow baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, mix the salt, pepper, five-spice powder, garlic and cilantro. Add the sesame oil; stir into a paste. Rub the paste in the slashes in the chicken and spread any remaining paste over the skin. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  3. Light a grill. Lightly oil the grate. Grill the chicken over a medium-hot fire, turning occasionally, for about 35 minutes, or until just cooked through. Brush the drumsticks with the honey and grill until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Serve hot.
