Quick and delicious! We enjoyed the over rice with a little egg and corn mixed through.

Fast, delicious, easy on the waistline, and cheap--what's not to love? These were truly yummy drumsticks! After I removed the skin I scored the meat to let the marinade seep in a bit, which made it even more moist. Also, I couldn't help but throw in a tiny bit of garlic with the marinade--it just seemed to beg for it. I completely forgot about the sesame seeds, though--Doh! Next time, I guess. There will definitely be a next time! Thanks for posting.
