This was so good.

Sweet & Sticky Chicken Drumsticks

from Giada’s Kitchen by Giada de Laurentiis
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup soy sauce
5 fresh rosemary sprigs
5 garlic cloves, halved
10 to 12 chicken drumsticks

Combine the vinegar, honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, rosemary sprigs and garlic cloves in a large, resealable plastic bag. Shake and squeeze the contents of the bag to dissolve the honey and the brown sugar. Add the chicken to the bag and seal, squeezing out as much air from them as possible. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 450 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and use cooling racks to place chicken on.

Remove the chicken drumsticks from the bag, reserving the marinade, and arrange them on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until the skin is caramelized and very dark in spots, 30 to 35 minutes.
Meanwhile place the marinade in a small saucepan. Bring the marinade to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook over low heat until thick, about 15 minutes. I used a little dissolved corn starch to thicken.
Brush marinade on chicken as it bakes.

I finished the chicken under the broiler for a few minutes. Serve with remainder of sauce.

Looks good.  I'll have to keep this in mind.

I prefer thighs, so that is what I'll try it out on.

Ideas are funny little things, they won't work unless you do.
