Black Bean Drumsticks

Author: Canadian Living

Serve this for dinner with Confetti Pepper Rice, but save two drumsticks for your child's lunch the next day. Black beans and garlic sauce is a Chinese convenience item available at most grocery stores. Made of seasoned fermented black beans, its sharp and salty flavour seems universally appreciated by children.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 8 skinless chicken drumsticks
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 teaspoons grated gingerroot
  • 1/3 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons black bean garlic sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds toasted

Method

In skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown drumsticks. Transfer to plate.

Drain off any fat in pan. Fry onion and ginger over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes.

Return chicken and any accumulated juices to pan. Add chicken stock and 2/3 cup (150 mL) water; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until juices run clear when chicken is pierced.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk cornstarch with 1 tbsp (15 mL) water; stir into liquid in pan along with black-bean-and-garlic sauce, sesame oil and sugar; cook until thickened and bubbly, about 1 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
