Oven Baked Barbecue Chicken Drumsticks

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 …

So I needed a can of 7-up or Sprite for a chicken recipe I wanted to try but I only had Sunkist and Coke in the fridge and was too busy to go to the shops to get what I needed. I ended up cooking Chicken Teriyaki, which I wasn’t really a fan of because …
