2 lbs. chicken legs
1 cup sesame oil
3/4 cups honey
2 TBSP. dark brown sugar
3 TBSP fresh chopped basil
3 cloves minced garlic
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl mix together sesame oil, honey, brown sugar, basil, and garlic. I used a wire whisk. Arrange the chicken in a glass baking dish. Pour the sauce over the chicken legs. For a fun variation add some sliced onion and chopped jalapeno peppers (be sure to remove the seeds!) on top.
Bake for about an hour and a half, or until cooked through. Turn the legs at the half-ways point.
I made this with wings yesterday. I found the wings only needed an hour to cook. I also added some fresh green onion, chopped and fresh cilantro, chopped instead of the basil. Feel free to play with this recipe! I also found 3/4 cup of sesame oil works just as well. I know sesame oil is high priced.
Here’s the recipe I based this on:
