I really like chicken. IT Guy....not so much. Oh he'll eat it...but he's like, meh..chicken. But guess what? He ate THIS with noooooo problem. Sticky and yummy and so easy to make! Drumsticks feed a lot of people for a little money, but you can use breasts or thighs or even wings! Or just use the whole ding-dang chicken! Delicious!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south.
