Chicken drumsticks are one of my favorite cuts of chicken to use, in fact I am always on the search for a good drumstick recipe. I like dark meat when it comes to chicken, I think dark meat is more flavorful and these cuts of chicken to be less expensive. I like being able to save on a few inexpensive meals during the week, so I can splurge on other meals. Chicken drumsticks is one way I do this.

If you have never had miso before most grocery stores sell miso, it is typically sold in the refrigerated section of the diary case. Or at least, that’s where I find it. Miso is a fermented soy bean paste, and it has a wonderful flavor. You may have tried this flavor before but often as a salad dressing in many Oriental recipes. This has a wonderful tangy flavor.

I like to serve these miso glazed chicken drumsticks on a bed of cooked rice. I think they make a great combination. If you don’t want to use drumbsticks this will work well with thighs, or even white meat, you can use whatever you have on hand. I like to marinate these overnight if I can. I sometimes like to prep two meals at once, during the week so the next night I spend far less time in the kitchen.
