Tangy Chicken Drumsticks

"A heads up to those using this as a main dish for adults. The serving size listed is misleading. A serving size should be at least 2-3 legs per person and that's even with side veggies and bread.

This is much like a recipe my mom made up when I was a kid. To follow her version more closely, I added ginger slices and a lot more garlic. This makes it more flavorful and more Chinese-style. I boiled cauliflower and cabbage on the side and they both go well dressed with the extra sauce from the chicken. "

Are you making this? 
3 pounds Chicken drumsticks
1 cup Honey
2 tbsp Ketchup
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 Cup Soy sauce
1 clove Garlic; minced
salt and pepper; to taste

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



Preheat oven to 375. Place the chicken legs in a 9x13 baking dish. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and pour evenly over chicken legs. Bake for approximately 1 hour.

**I use drumsticks but any type of chicken can be used.

This was fantastic! Had my mom over for dinner and she said 'this was the best chicken I have ever had!' I brought a bowl of the sauce to the table to dip the chicken in it. Fantastic!!!

Tried it and absolutely loved it! I don't eat/like chicken but this was actually mouth watering as I was taking it out of the oven. I had to have a bite! So good! My husband loved it too and loved the fact that I ate chicken too ( 2 drumsticks !!! )
