Yuzu and Tamarind Drumstick with Roasted Baby Bok Choy

Tangy tamarind paste and citrusy yuzu ponzu flavor these incredibly juicy chicken drumsticks. Sweet honey and fresh grated aromatics are added to the marinade for a balanced and umami-rich sauce that’s perfect for serving over the chicken. To prepare the baby bok choy for roasting, quarter each head lengthwise and gently spread the leaves open under running water to remove any excess dirt.
