If you are looking for an easy, no-fuss dinner, this Grape and Red Onion Chicken Drumsticks dish is perfect.

Besides for cutting the Onions into wedges, this is basically a dump and bake recipe.

You can use different cuts of Chicken. But I prefer to stick to one type in a dish, as all the pieces would be cooked at exactly the same time, provided that you arrange all the ingredients in a single layer.

This is a fairly large recipe and could be stretched to 8 portions. Depending on your family’s appetites and likes or dislikes of Chicken.

Not that I think there are that many people (vegetarians excluded, of course!) who do not like Chicken.

The Red Wine just about evaporates and I do not use a lot in this recipe anyway, therefore it is perfectly safe for the kids.

However, if you are really not the Wine cooking type, use Chicken stock instead. The dish would not have exactly the same rich taste as when made with the Red Wine but it will still be a great meal.

How to make your own Balsamic Reduction

*NOTE: I make my own Balsamic reduction, usually a full bottle and then I use it as needed.

To make your own only takes a few minutes – if you want enough for this specific recipe, bring 1/3 cup of Balsamic Vinegar (brown or light) to the boil – let simmer until the Vinegar has turned syrupy – the quantity would be half of what you initially started off with – use as per the recipe.

This chicken looks so yummy. I have to admit, I have never cooked with grapes before. I always thought of them as a snack food. I will have to give this a try. Thanks for sharing your great recipe at the This Is How We Roll link party. Always glad you share!
