This has to be a favourite with us. When you have had the same old takeaway time after time try this recipe. The Apple glazed chicken drumsticks will have your mouth watering and longing for more. The simple marinade of ground ginger, molasses, apple butter and salt and pepper has such a clean flavour. The chicken drumsticks absorb the flavour superbly and coat the skin to become lovely and crispy.  I serve these with simple chips and homemade Onion Rings.  This is a simple recipe that even my husband can do. Whilst the recipe says use the broiler, they are also superb on the bbq.
