      i've made this recipe about 4 times now, substituting boneless skinless chicken breasts for the drumsticks. It's turned out a little differently each time, but it has a lovely, delicate flavor and the chicken is quite tender. Patting dry the chicken is important and will change the amount of liquid in the pan when first browning. .which intensifies the flavor.
