Made this for dinner last night and was very much enjoyed by the DS, DM and myself. I scaled back for 2 -3 serves as I had just over a kilo of drumsticks (8 in all) and still cut back on the soy and honey for dietary reasons. I cooked the chicken in the marinade for 50 minutes and it was perfect. Thank you Denise in NH, made for Bargain Basement tag game.
