Braised Chicken Drumsticks by Angela Seah Thulin

Cooked this today, and my son sang with praises non-stop! With no marinade but instead a short list of different seasonings, the chicken drumsticks can still be deftly flavored and succulently braised. The broth absorbs the rich flavour from the soy sauce and the chicken.
