READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by ImPat

From Huey's Cooking Adventures. Times are estimated but to be honest I would be cutting the honey back to about 2 tablespoons from a 1/2 cup due to diabetic reasons but otherwise happy witht he recipe, he posted as a kids like recipe so servings are for 4-6 kids but I would say 3-4 adults Serve just the drumsticks as an appertizer or at a picnic could be good too.

Such a simple and easy recipe to make.
Not too spicy at all, the only thing I would change next time, (and not the recipe's fault at all) is that I used gluten free soy sauce, and it was very salty, so I think I will need to find a GF sauce that is less salty or better still salt free, although the salt had no negative outcome on the taste of the chicken, the chicken was fantastic!
Thanks Pat, for a great recipe I will use again.
