Asian Chicken Drumsticks

I really like to make these asian chicken drumsticks in my “dutch oven”.

The reason I do this is because the chicken cooks in the juices and never becomes dry.

Which works so well because this recipe is served over a bed of Jasmine rice and their is even leftover juice remaining that is uses as a sauce.

This is really a set it and forget it type recipe too, simply marinade the chicken in your dutch oven the night prior.

And take it out of the fridge and place in directly into a preheated oven at 425 f for 45 minutes. 

Marinating Asian Chicken Drumsticks

Meanwhile, cook some rice on the side in a rice cooker and your ready to eat a satisfying meal that the whole family is sure to love.

As with all my recipes, if you want to serve more people.

Simply double the recipe ingredients up.

Can I bake these in the oven?

Absolutely! However keep in mind they won’t be juicy and their will be no sauce for the rice. 

How to make the best baked asian chicken drumsticks

  1. Marinade– You want to marinate them overnight.
  2. Time – You do not want to bake them for more than 45 minutes.

This marinade consists of soy sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, black pepper.

Asian Chicken Drumsticks

Yield: 3
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Serve over a bed of Jasmine Rice!


  • 6 Chicken drumsticks
  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp Green onions
  • 1/3 cup Soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp rice wine, mirin
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • Pinch black pepper


  1. Put the chicken into a large zipper-lock bag (27cm x 33 cm/10.6 inch x 13 inch) and add the sauce. Seal the bag and vigorously shake the bag and massage the chicken so that the sauce smears well onto the chicken. Marinate it for at least 30 minutes in the fridge. (I marinated mine for 4 hrs. Overnight works well too!)
  2. Preheat an oven at 240 C/ 464 F (on the fan forced setting) for 20 mins. Take the chicken out from the fridge. Lay down some baking paper on the oven tray and line up the chicken. Make sure they are not stacked up on top of each other. Alternatively, you can use an oven safe pot and put the chicken in and the marinade. (This is explained above. They result in slightly different outcomes.)
  3. Put the tray/pot into the oven and bake it at 240 C/ 464 F for 12 mins. Take the tray/pot out and turn the chicken over and put it back into the oven. Bake it a further 12 mins or until the chicken is fully cooked. Garnish with the sesame seeds and green onion. Serve.
