I wanted to try this Aristocrat Style Chicken Barbecue Recipe but because I didn’t have one of the ingredients needed, I had to tweak the recipe a bit and came up with a slightly different version.  The drumsticks tasted great and we had them without anything else on the side while watching TV. 🙂  Finger licking …
