Asian Glazed Drumsticks



Chicken wings is one of my favourite foods to eat because I love physically eating them. I ran across this recipe while looking for a buffalo sauce and I knew I had to try it. The Asian Glazed Drumsticks taste like Chinese food but with the fun process of eating a chicken leg. I paired them with sautéed broccoli and snow peas (covered in the chicken sauce) because they are typical vegetables served with Chinese food. This recipe would also be great for a party.

Chicken with Asparagus and Pistachios



- 1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces

- 1 pound chicken tenders, cut into bite-size pieces

- 4 scallions, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

- 1 tablespoon oyster-flavored sauce

- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

- 1 teaspoon chile-garlic sauce

- 1/4 cup shelled salted pistachios, coarsely chopped


1. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over High heat. Add asparagus; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.

2. Add chicken; cook, stirring, for 4 minutes.

3. Stir in scallions, ginger, oyster sauce and chile-garlic sauce; cook, stirring, until the chicken is juicy and just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes more.

4. Stir in pistachios. Serve.

Salmon with Hoisin Glaze


- 4 skinless salmon fillets (6 oz. each)

- 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
