Evaluation:I served this meal to my family and we all thought it turned out well. The only complaint came from my 9 year old sister who said there was not enough chicken on the drumstick.
Evaluation: I also did not burn anything. The only thing I did differently from the recipe was I put the drumsticks directly on the baking sheet and they still turned out good.
