Disco Chicken Recipe

Not much needs to be said about a dish that has ‘disco’ in its name, but allow us to divulge the description of this awesomeness that is the disco chicken. Commonly also known as maple rum chicken, the preparation packs a delicious punch of flavours from ingredients like spiced rum, maple syrup, dark soy sauce, and more. The juicy chicken pieces are cooked in this palatable blend of ingredients and served with a light sprinkle of sesame seeds and freshly ground pepper.

But why is it called ‘disco chicken’? Well, the reasons vary across different kitchen but according to one website, the dish derives the name from its glazed sesame-sprinkled appearance, which reminds some of a disco ball. So grab your chef whites and get ready to whip up a delicious disco chicken this weekend!

P.S. You can use this same recipe to make some maple rum glazed chicken wings as well. Just switch the chicken thighs for chicken wings!
