Sticky Chicken Drumsticks

"From a local supermarket winter promotional book. HAVE NOT included 30 minutes of marinating time in the cooking time. Please also note that the sauce is a sweet chilli sauce (could not get ZAAR to accept as an ingredient)."

    I made this with chicken breasts and also added a bit of honey. It was so good. I did thicken the sauce with cornstarch after I removed the chicken pieces and served it with sticky rice. A keeper recipe for sure

    This chicken is delicious and so easy. I used the full amount of marinade for 5 chicken legs. The pan was lined with foil and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. This kept the chicken from sticking and made for easy clean-up.

    Delicious and so quick to put together! I marinated in an oven-proof glass dish that I transferred straight to the oven and served along with a basic fried rice. I spooned over some of the remaining marinade before serving which went wonderfully with the rice.
    Made this tonight and my husband loved them. I marinated them all day in the sauce. I turned them every 10 minutes while they cooked, They were not dry on the outside at all. Thanks for this recipe!


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
