Sticky Grilled Drumsticks with Plum Sauce
Recipe from Food and Wine
12 chicken drumsticks
2 tablespoons canola oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
2 red or purple plums (4 ounces each), pitted and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 cup hot or sweet red pepper jelly
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup hot water
1. Light a grill. Rub the chicken with the canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, about 30 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook over moderately low heat, stirring until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the plums and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until softened and nearly broken down, about 5 minutes. Add the red pepper jelly and mustard and bring to a boil, stirring until the jelly is melted. Carefully transfer the mixture to a food processor. Add the water and puree until smooth. Season the plum sauce with salt and pepper.
