Hi guys! I wanted to share with you a very exciting video I just posted on my youtube channel. It’s called Movie Munchies where we will review a film and make a recipe on the same video. This week to celebrate the Super Bowl we are talking about 2009’s The Blind Side and making my favorite apricot chicken drumsticks- perfect for game day. This was a huge challenge for me and I would love to get your feedback.
We’ve already got episode 2 filmed and will probably do this a couple of times a month. If you have any ideas for good movie/meal parings please let me know!
Making this video required a whole new kind of editing and filming for me so I learned a lot but I’m really excited for the future. I loved my chemistry with Jacqueline and found the entire experience very rewarding. I know each episode will only continue to improve.
Thanks for checking it out.
Here is the recipe:
3 lbs drumsticks or other meat
1 cup onions diced
1 cup bell peppers diced
3 cloves garlic minced
1/3 c soy sauce
1/4 c firmly packed cup brown sugar
1/4 c molasses
1/4 c honey
1 14 ounce bottle ketchup
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
hot sauce to taste
1 jar apricot preserves
Heat up onions, peppers, and garlic till translucent. In separate skillet sear the chicken on high heat to get a golden brown color. Add all ingredients except for jam, heat and then let simmer till it thickens.
Add apricot jam to mixture and poor over chicken.
Bake at 400 degrees for an hour, remove tin foil at 30 minutes. Test with thermometer. Want chicken 165 degrees or higher.
Enjoy! Let me know if you like it and I’ve made it with wings, pork, ribs etc.
