Balsamic Glazed Wings

Cooking Time: 40-55 min    Servings: 4-6


  • ¼ c The Olive Scene Harissa Olive Oil

  • ½ c The Olive Scene Fig Balsamic Vinegar

  • ½ c honey

  • ½ c brown sugar

  • ¼ c soy sauce

  • 5 sprigs of rosemary

  • 5 garlic cloves, halved

  • 18-20 chicken wings

  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds


  1. Combine the balsamic, honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, rosemary sprigs, and garlic cloves, in a medium bowl.

  2. Wisk in the olive oil and put all into a large, re-sealable plastic bag.

  3. Add the chicken drumsticks to the bag and seal with as little air as possible in the bag.

  4. Place in the refrigerator and marinate for 2 hours.

  5. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

  6. Place the chicken drumsticks on a foil-lined baking sheet.

  7. Bake until the skin is caramelized and very dark in spots, about 25-30 minutes.

  8. Meanwhile, place the marinade in a small saucepan.

  9. Bring the marinade to a boil (in order to kill bacteria).

  10. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook over low heat until thick, about 15 minutes.

  11. Remove the garlic and rosemary. Reserve. Use a pastry brush to brush some of the cooked marinade on the cooked wings.

  12. Place the chicken on a serving platter. 

  13. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

  14. Serve with the remaining cooked marinade as a sauce on the side
