a gluten-free and dairy-free recipe

1/2 cup of jam (choose your flavor) – I used a combination of sour cherry and pineapple shiracha!

8-10 chicken drumsticks

Olive oil for baking dish

Fresh chopped herbs for a garnish

Preheat oven to 375F.

Rinse and pat dry the chicken.  Sprinkle a little bit of olive oil (1 TSP) in an 8*11 baking dish.  Use a paper towel to coat the sides and the bottom.

Heat the jam in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute.  Stir jam (you want it to be thin, but not burn!)

Place the chicken in prepared pan.  Brush the heated jam over the tops of each drumstick.

Bake for 30-45 minutes (juices will be clear.)

Serve and Enjoy!
