Although it may sound like a new, hard-to find, trendy ingredient, silan is just a honey derived from dates and has actually been around for a long time. It has a deeper, more caramel flavor profile than bee honey, much like the taste of dried dates themselves.


Prepare the Chicken Legs


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).


In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and Dijon mustard.


Pull down the skin on a drumstick, wrap a piece of smoked meat around the chicken, and pull the skin back up to cover.


Spread the mayonnaise-mustard mixture on the chicken skin and then roll the drumstick in bread crumbs.


Place in a baking pan and drizzle generously with silan. Repeat with remaining drumsticks.


Bake covered for 20 minutes, then uncover and bake for another 45 minutes.
