Best Chicken Ever!

This is, by far, one of the BEST chicken dishes I have ever eaten. This recipe has been adapted from (all weight watcher friendly foods).

Asian Glazed Drumsticks

8 drumsticks
1C water
1T sriracha hot sauce (Asian food isle with the rooster on the bottle)
1/2C balsamic vinegar
1/2C soy sauce
4t sugar
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1T cornstarch
1-2T water
1 1/2 t ginger, grated
1-2 scallions, chopped

In a large pan, sprayed with cooking spray, brown drumsticks on high for 3-4 minutes. Turning to brown both sides.
Add water, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger and hot sauce. Cook on high until it reaches a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 20 minutes.
Remove cover and bring heat to high. Boil mixture until it is reduced to a glaze (~8 minutes). At this point, I mixed the 1T cornstarch with 1-2T water until combined and poured it into my sauce/chicken mix. It helped bring the mixture to a thicker consistency. Turn chicken occasionally to coat the drumstick with the glaze.
Place chicken on platter and pour glaze over the top. Sprinkle with sliced scallions.
Would be YUMMY served with brown rice that you could put some extra glaze on!
