Hoisin Peanut Butter Glazed Chicken Drumsticks

I can't believe it has been nearly a month since my last blog post. Don't worry nothing life threatening happened to me the past few weeks. I was basically stuck with loads of paperwork, 2-months of paperwork that I set aside during my PhD exam. I didn't realize that I have that much work to do, so food blogging was set aside for a while, seriously I didn't expect to be that long. Hopefully, I didn't desert you viewers for too long (probably I did). I have lots of blog catching up to do.

Here's a quick update of my weeks:
  1. For all of you who were waiting impatiently of the results of my PhD exam, I successfully passed it.

  2. After 8 months from the submission of my thesis, I finally graduated and received my Master degree.

  3. Some of you might already know the news, I will be heading to UK to give a talk about my research at a conference in Cambridge University in mid-July. Afterwards, I will travel around UK until the end of July. I will be meeting some food bloggers. If you live in UK, I would gladly meet you, just send me an e-mail.
If you're busy person like me and don't feel doing much on the stove. This Thai-inspired dish is something you do want to make on your lazy-to-cook days. All you need is to mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and brush it over the chicken. Leave it in the oven until fully cooked. Remember: a balance of sweet, sour, salty and spicy flavours is key to a great Thai dish.
