      Very good, very easy too. I marinated overnight in a heavy zip'lock bag. Did 20 Drumsticks. Almost 4 lbs. and doubled the marinade. I basted twice and also turned them over.I turned on the broiler at the end to crisp the surface. Moist, tender and delicious.

      Absolutley fantastic! This recipe was phenominal and also very simple. I made a few minor changes to suit my family's prefferences and turned the marinade into a sauce to be served on the side of the chicken after I was done basting. I used smaller pieces of chicken and it only needed 30 minutes in the oven and came out extremely tender and delicious
