Drumsticks with Peaches and Honey

These drumsticks are good served hot over rice or cold as picnic fare
Ingredients
2 teaspoons butter
1 teaspoon minced garlic
10 chicken drumsticks
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon butter
1/2 onion, sliced
5 teaspoons honey


2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup water
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons water
1 peach, peeled and sliced
 

Preparation
Heat 2 teaspoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook for a minute or two until the garlic softens and mellows. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and add to the skillet. Cook until the chicken has browned on all sides, about 15 minutes.

When the drumsticks have browned, remove, and set aside. Melt the remaining 1 teaspoon butter in the skillet, and stir in the sliced onion. Cook and stir until the onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes, then stir in the honey, soy sauce, ginger, and 1 cup of water. Return the drumsticks to the skillet, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, spread the lemon slices overtop, cover with a lid, and simmer until the drumsticks are tender and no longer pink at the bone, about 15 minutes.

Once the drumsticks have cooked, remove them to a serving platter and keep warm. Dissolve the cornstarch in 2 teaspoons of water, and stir into the simmering sauce. Add the peach, and cook until the sauce thickens and returns to a simmer. Pour sauce over the drumsticks to serve.
