I would give this recipe more stars, but for the unclear instructions. The recipe indicates that 1/4 cup of the sauce should be reserved, but does not mention when to make use of this.

I coated the chicken with the larger amount of sauce, and baked in a rectangular casserole dish for thirty minutes. It would have been a mess if I had used a shallow pan, as the recipe seemed to indicate, for there was a lot of juice.

After thirty minutes, I turned and basted the chicken. When it was completely cooked, I coated it with the reserved sauce and returned it to the oven briefly.

The flavor was very good.


  1. Mix first 3 ingredients and reserve 1/4 cup.
  2. Toss remaining sauce with the drumsticks.
  3. Place on a rimmed baking sheet either lined with nonstick foil or coated with a thin layer of olive oil.
  4. Bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes.
  5. Baste with the reserved sauce and return to the oven for 10 minutes.
  6. Enjoy!
