Buffalo Style Chicken Wings are the norm at most parties but to be honest we prefer chicken drumsticks. First off, chicken drumsticks have a lot more meat on them and less skin or no skin at all. Plus, they’re much easier to eat. Don’t get me wrong, We love Franks Red Hot Buffalo Chicken Dip but just not wings. Sorry all you wing fans:(

Many Different Recipes

There are as many different recipes for Asian Style Sticky Drumsticks as there are recipes for All of the recipes have three basic components to them.

Long enough for the spices to penetrate the meat and to allow the soy sauce and brown sugar to work they’re magic. Not only do these two simple ingredients tenderize the meat, when allowed to hang out in the oven, the brown sugar and soy sauce transforms into a sticky, slightly salty, sweet sauce.
