    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    This recipe is courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis. I haven't actually made it, but I work with a young lady who prepared it and brought it to the office. This was so good we looked like some hogs "slopping at the trough" gnawing on those drumsticks and licking our fingers. We were even eating the marinade after all the chicken was gone because we didn't want to waste a drop. If you wanted to serve this as an appetizer you could use the "drumettes" from the chicken wings. The original recipe does not call for salt, but after tasting it I feel it does need some salt so I listed it as an optional ingredient.

      This was my first recipe I tried and it is still my favorite. The balsamic vinegar and honey together make a delicious glaze when grilled. We always make more when grilling so that we can have leftovers the next day since we love it so much.

      I made this for dinner and it was not enjoyed very much by MH or myself. He said give it 3 stars at the most. The flavor was different and did not suit our taste at all.
