Fun recipe with stuff that the whole family likes. My drumsticks were fairly large, so I baked this an extra 10 minutes for a total of 50 minutes. The meat was still slightly undercooked, so DH and I microwaved the meat only for another minute or two until they were done. DD came home about 15 minutes later and decided to have some as well. Her packet had been sitting on the counter unopened during that time. When she opened her packet, the chicken was perfectly done. The stand time helped cooked the chicken to perfection.
