This is my first post of a new recipe and I gotta tell you...a winner right out of the gate. This recipe comes from a blog I frequent, Gina's Skinny Recipes (where you will find much better photos of this recipe) but this is the frist recipe I've tried it's called

8 medium chicken drumsticks, skin removed
Pam spray oil
1 cup water
1 tbsp Sriracha hot sauce (more or less to taste)
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
4 tsp agave nectar (or sugar)
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp ginger, grated
2 tbsp chives or scallions, chopped
1 tsp sesame seeds
In a heavy large saucepan, brown chicken on high for 3-4 minutes with a little spray oil. Add water, balsamic, soy sauce, agave, garlic, ginger, hot sauce and cook on high until liquid comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered for about 20 minutes. Remove cover and bring heat to high, allowing sauce to reduce down, about 8 minutes until it becomes a thick glaze, turning chicken occasionally. (Keep an eye on glaze, you don't want it to burn when it start becoming thick) Transfer chicken to a platter and pour glaze on top. Top with chives and sesame seeds and serve.

I subbed skinless boneless chicken thighs and it was truly fantastic. The combo of the soy sauce (which I sometimes find to strong) and the balsamic vinegar gave the chicken such a good flavor. The sauce was so good I had to put some of it over my rice also and then add just a bit more of the Sriracha hot sauce. Can I just say....yummy! Now to be truthful the boys have not tasted this one yet. The will get leftovers, but I think that they will enjoy it even if not as thrilled as I.
Update...the Meat eater ate all the leftovers..not sure there was a chance for Carb lover to try it. :)
