This is very quick to prepare and to later throw in the oven.

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.
