READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by teresas

This is out of a WW Cookbook called "Quick Cooking for Busy People" It has only 2 WW Points. DH gave it an excellent rating. Hope you enjoy! For a quick meal serve with grilled slices of veggies (zucchini, yellow squash, onion or peppers). For additional flavor, brush vegetables with remaining marinade before placing them on the grill. Cooking time does not include marinating time.

This was SOOOOOO delish! I used drumsticks, which is what I had on had and marinaded for 24 hours. I microwaved the chicken (minus the marinade) for 7 minutes and then finished on a medium/low setting on the BBQ, basting every 5 minutes or so, for about 20 mins. The result were savoury, slightly spicy, slightly sweet drumsticks from chicken heaven! Thank you Teresas...this one is a keeper!
