Beer-broiled chicken drumsticks
12 fl oz, dark variety
1 Tbsp, seeded and minced (wear gloves to prevent irritation)
3 medium clove(s), crushed through a press
uncooked skinless boneless chicken drumstick(s)
2 pound(s), 8 (1/4-punds)
- Combine 1 cup of the beer, the jalapeño pepper, garlic, five-spice powder, and salt in a zip-close plastic bag; add the chicken. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag; turn to coat the chicken. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
- Spray the broiler rack with nonstick spray; preheat the broiler.
- Transfer the chicken from the bag to the broiler rack; discard the marinade. Broil the chicken 5 inches from the heat, turning occasionally and basting with the remaining 1⁄2 cup beer, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in adrumstick registers 180°F, about 20 minutes. Yields 2 chicken drumsticks per serving.
