The reviews seemed so mixed on this that I was intrigued and thought I'd give it a try, especially since it looked similar to a sweet and sour chicken recipe that is a big hit with my husband. It wasn't terrible, but next time I will stick with the sweet and sour chicken. I omitted the corn oil, as it did not seem necessary (glad I did, I didn't miss it at all) and added @ 1/4 cup thai sweet chile sauce as another reviewer recommended. I can see why folks might want to add cornstarch to thicken it up a bit. I found that with the sauce as thin as it was, even though it tasted good over rice, the chicken itself was very bland. I did reduce the sauce in a frying pan after cooking the chicken, and that helped a bit. If I were to make this again, I'd probably marinate the drumsticks first so they would have more flavor. I don't think I will be making this again though. It just wasn't that great.
