    This was awesome! I did change it up a bit for what I had in the kitchen. I didn't have chicken broth so I just used water. I added the zest of 4 tiny limes and the juice. Instead of Marjoram I used thyme. No soy, I used kosher salt. It was fantastic. I live alone so of course I had leftovers,using! - 1/10/15

    Was very good and the drumsticks are so tender. I made them tonight and I will let them marinade in the sauce then heat them tomorrow hopefully on the grill. - 4/4/08

    Great! I wish I made more. I had to use a frying pan to brown the chicken. They would not brown in my crockpot. - 3/19/08
