If you're looking for a budget-friendly main dish with bold flavors, try these Asian-marinated chicken drumsticks.
1. In a large bowl, combine lemongrass, fish sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, shallots, sugar and black pepper; mix well.
2. Remove skin from drumsticks, place in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
3. Heat broiler. Broil chicken 4 inches away from heat source for 15 to 17 minutes or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Turn every 5 minutes to avoid burning.
4. Meanwhile, strain marinade into small saucepan. Add 3/4 cup water and bring to a boil over high heat; boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and drizzle over drumsticks. Serve immediately. Note: For a simple side dish, combine 1 package coleslaw mix with miso-sesame dressing to taste; add chopped fresh ginger and sesame seeds.
