I made these for a buffet and all the guests enjoyed them very much. You do have to keep a close watch on them while in the oven as they do burn easily! I would definitely make them again as they are quite tasty!

This is a great recipe - very tasty and simple to make. The whole family loved it and the drumsticks were just as tasty cold the next day. Will make again.

doubled the marinade quantity and left them overnight. Didn't look cooked after specified time so put them under the grill for a few mins basting them repeatedly with the sauce - this made the sauce much stickier and they ended up looking a lot more like the picture in the recipe.

Very tasty and easy. I had chicken breasts and diced them up and marinaded them in the sauce for a few hours then cooked them with the marinade in the oven and served with Chinese noodles. The family loved them.
