Ingredients

  • 1/2

    teaspoon freshly grated orange zest

  • 1/4

    cup orange juice

  • 1/4

    cup water

  • 3

    tablespoons honey

  • 1

    tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cider vinegar, divided

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt, divided

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1

    teaspoon cornstarch

  • 1/4

    cup chopped fresh mint

  • 8

    chicken drumsticks, (about 2 pounds), skin removed, trimmed

  • 1/4

    teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Directions

1 Preheat grill to medium. (No grill? See Broiler Variation, below.) 2.To prepare dipping sauce, combine orange zest, orange juice, water, honey, 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon salt and coriander in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Whisk cornstarch and the remaining 1 teaspoon vinegar in a small bowl until smooth. Add to the saucepan and return to a boil, whisking until thickened, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Stir in mint. 3. Sprinkle drumsticks with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the drumsticks until crispy on all sides and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, about 15 minutes total. Serve the drumsticks with the dipping sauce on the side. Broiler variation: Position oven rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat broiler to high. Prepare sauce (Step 2). Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle drumsticks with salt and pepper (Step 3), then broil, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, about 15 minutes total.
