Sweet and Sour Drumsticks

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by LAURIE

From a fav cookbook, Simply chicken, my family loves drumsticks, so this is made often when we fire up the grill. Prep time includes marinading.

Didn't notice much difference with this marinade unfortunately. Had all the ingredients on hand, which is a plus. Marinated for 2.5 hrs, turning drumsticks regularly. Cooked over low heat on the grill and because of the honey, the skin burnt easily. Didn't notice any flavoring difference, but it didn't negatively impact the flavor either. Thanks for posting.
