Sticky Drumsticks Recipe

This recipe is easy to prepare and yummy to eat!  It seems to be a favorite with kids and makes nice leftovers for lunch the next day.  It lives up to its name; it is a bit sticky but the chicken is worth it!  Although this recipe calls for drumsticks, I would say that thighs would work just as well.  You would have to adjust the cooking time slightly but they would be fine to use.
