My friend Elly raved about a balsamic chicken recipe I've been meaning to try... and with limited ingredients in the kitchen, I'm thankful I had things on hand to adapt the original recipe. The recipe also called for balsamic vinegar, a definite pantry staple in my kitchen.

Here is my adapted recipe for Giada's Balsamic Chicken Drummettes, in which I used chicken thighs:


  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/4 cup rosemary & garlic seasoning
  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


  • Combine the balsamic, honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, rosemary & garlic seasoning, in a large, re-sealable plastic bag.
  • Shake and squeeze the contents of the bag to dissolve the honey and the brown sugar.
  • Add the chicken thighs to the bag and seal with as little air as possible in the bag.
  • Place in the refrigerator and marinate overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Place the chicken drumsticks on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake until the skin is caramelized and very dark in spots, about 30 to 35 minutes.
