      This was absolutely divine. I made the recipe with chicken thighs as I couldn't figure out what drummettes were (drumsticks?). We had it with rice and a stirfry and the whole family adored it. This is most definitely a keeper. Thank you, Uncle Bill, for sharing this receipe with us. I'll definitely be making this again soon.

      This chicken dish is packed with flavor and is also quick and easy enough for weeknights. I served with brown basmatic rice and sesame asparagus. I chopped what little leftovers there were to make a quick fried rice the next day, which was also great!
