Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large saute pan set over medium-high heat, place the orange juice, pineapple juice, orange zest, garlic, ginger, green onion, sesame oil, soy sauce, mirin, sugar and red pepper flakes. Bring the pan to a boil and stir occasionally until the sugar is dissolved and the liquid has reduced to a thick syrup, about 20 minutes.

Season the drumsticks with the Essence and salt. Place on a sheet pan or casserole and drizzle liberally with the glaze. Place the casserole in the oven, and cook until the chicken is cooked through and caramelized, about 40 to 45 minutes. To serve, garnish with chopped fresh cilantro, and the sesame seeds. Serve with any unused glaze on the side.

Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):
2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme

Combine all ingredients thoroughly.

Yield: 2/3 cup

Recipe from "New New Orleans Cooking", by Emeril Lagasse and Jessie Tirsch, published by William and Morrow, 1993.

    Wow! This was so super delicious. Easy to make. I used drums and thighs. Sauce was awesome, sweet with just the right amount heat from the red pepper flake. I will definitely a be making this again. This is now one of my go to chicken recipes to impress guests.
