Chicken Drumsticks Apricot Braise

Carole's Chatter: Chicken Drumsticks Apricot Braise

Inspired by Sweet Love & Ginger I tried to replicate her Grilled Chicken with Spicy Apricot Sauce.  Of course, I didn't follow her method exactly.  Instead of grilling I put it in the oven and the sauce turned into a glaze.  I also had to substitute for paprika and cayenne pepper.  The result was sweetly spicy.


Chicken drumsticks
Apricot Jam
Worcestershire sauce
Soy sauce
Dijon mustard
Garlic infused oil
Garam masala
Dried chilli
Grated ginger
Lemon juice
Tomato paste


I mixed all the ingredients together and then put them into a foil lined tray with the chicken.  I'll leave you to figure out the proportions – it depends how sweet you like it.  I used about a third of a jar of apricot jam – and the result wasn't too sweet – but was on the edge for me.

I left this lot marinating in the fridge for a couple of hours

I then put it into a low oven about 2 hours before dinner.

With 20 minutes left, I turned the drumsticks over and cranked the oven heat up.


  1. Reminds me of Apricot Chicken from the 70s and 80s

  2. That sounds pretty good. Might give it a try.

  3. I was thinking the same things as Marg. Looks tasty.
