Made as is and very tasty - great marinade. We would like the skin a little crispier so next time may turn the oven to broil for a few minutes before pulling out to crisp up a bit. All in all great recipe and thanks for sharing!

This was okay, my wife and I both ate it and it was very handy to throw together in a hurry but I've had much nicer marinades. I would suggest thickening the sauce as some others have suggested, and I would cook the chicken at a higher temperature for a shorter time as it was overcooked in my opinion. (425 for 30 mins). Not bad if you are in a hurry, but if you had time I would go for something different.

Pretty good. Family enjoyed it. Only change was to add a bit of minced garlic to the marinate ( we love garlic).

I tried this in a crockpot on low and it was ready in under four hours. My family and guests liked it. I skinned the chicken by peeling it off while it was partially frozen (before marinating).

Didn't have Hoisin sauce, so kindof threw together some stuff to try to mimic it (dark karo syrup, chines 5 spice, a couple of dashes of chinese hot sauce and a tiny bit of cooking sherry). No idea if it even came close, but MAN was this DELICIOUS! I think it was the best chicken I've ever made! One of my 7 year old twins at THREE drumsticks (all of my kids are picky eaters and eat like little birds)!!! I was so disappointed when I came home from class to ZERO leftovers!

Delicious! Made extra sauce and thickened it with a cornstarch slurry. Served chicken over rice with green beans and drizzled sauce over everything. Add some chili garlic paste for a little spice.

This was easy to make, quick and simplistic. Nothing WOW 5 stars about it. I used my foodsaver marinator to marinate the chicken which made it quicker. I am not a fan of drumsticks, so next time I will try it with chicken thighs

This was very, very good, and quite easy. The skin was nicely browned but not so crispy as to be burned, but it very effectively sealed in the moistue and juice of the chicken. I used the pan juices to make an excellent stir-fried rice.
