Asian Sesame Drumsticks

Asian Sesame Chicken DrumsticksI don’t know about you, but I am beginning to feel like the summer is slipping away and soon fall will be here! There are just a few short weeks left of summer, but that doesn’t mean it is time to stop enjoying it just yet. These Asian Sesame Chicken Drumsticks are perfect for a summertime get-together with family or friends. I love this recipe because it is so simple, but the chicken turns out flavorful every time. I am usually terrible at baking chicken in the oven (it always turns out dry), but this drumstick recipe is a keeper! It hasn’t failed me yet…

This summer I partnered up with Chinet Bakeware® to giveaway some of their bakeware for one winner to try! I made these chicken drumsticks in the large oval pan (9×11 inches). You can marinade, bake, and store leftovers all in the same bakeware – how convenient is that?! To enter to win, just use the Rafflecopter widget below. One winner will be chosen on Wednesday, 9/4/13. US/Canada only. Good luck!!

    Before the summer is over, I would love to make Peach Cobbler! I guess if the time unfortunately comes when they are out of season, apple cobbler would also be the perfect dish for the chinet dish!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I do hope you have a few more days of sunshine and warm weather before winter sets in. We’re coming to the end of winter but we’ve had the mildest winter on record and it certainly feels like Spring has been here for a while. xx
