• 3/4 cup brown sugar

• 4 cloves garlic, minced

• 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce

• 1 teaspoon grated ginger

• 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Rinse and pat dry chicken drumsticks.

2. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together the sesame oil and cornstarch.

3. Stir in the soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, and chili garlic sauce. Bring to a simmer and cook until sauce begins to thicken. Remove from heat and allow to slightly cool.

4. Place drumsticks in a large bowl and pour cooled BBQ sauce over chicken. Toss to coat thoroughly. On a parchment lined baking sheet, line up the drumsticks.
