  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion diced
  • 2 tbsp fresh ginger minced
  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • 1/4 tsp salt x2
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper x2


  1. Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat.

  2. Add onions and ginger and saute until onions are clear.

  3. Make sure onions and ginger are evenly spread across the pan. Add drumsticks to the pan in a single layer on top of the onions and ginger.

  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper over drumsticks. Cover pan and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes.

  5. Flip drumsticks. Sprinkle the second round of salt and pepper over drumsticks. Cover pan and cook on medium low heat for 35 minutes. Make sure chicken is cooked thoroughly.

  6. Bonus: the chicken fat and the water from ginger and onion produced an awesome ginger sauce as it was cooking. Serve drumsticks with the ginger sauce and onions, and your favorite side dish.
