So, I was browsing the net for recipes and found one of the most amazing food blogs that I've seen in a while. I am so excited to share skinnytaste with you.  This site has excellent recipes that is not only tasty but low in calories and great for your health.  The food is so delicious, your family wouldn't be able to tell that its low fat at all.  Not unless you tell them. sssssssshhhhhhhhhh.

I saw the recipe below for Asian glazed drumsticks and I just had to try it. So d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!!!!  Skinnytaste rocks!  Check the site out and let me know what you think.

Calories: 213 • Fat: 4.7 g  Protein: 27.5 g  Carb: 12.7 g  Fiber: 0.4 g  

  • 8 medium chicken drumsticks, skin removed
  • Pam spray oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha hot sauce (more or less to taste)
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 4 tsp agave nectar (or sugar)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp ginger, grated
  • 2 tbsp chives or scallions, chopped
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds

In a heavy large saucepan, brown chicken on high for 3-4 minutes with a little spray oil. Add water, balsamic, soy sauce, agave, garlic, ginger, hot sauce and cook on high until liquid comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered for about 20 minutes. Remove cover and bring heat to high, allowing sauce to reduce down, about 8-10 minutes, until it becomes a thick glaze, turning chicken occasionally. (Keep an eye on glaze, you don't want it to burn when it start becoming thick) Transferchicken to a platter and pour glaze on top. Top with chives and sesame seeds and serve.
