  • This is a great recipe. My husband tends to be a bit picky sometimes. So, I wasn't sure would like it. But, he loved it! Definitely would cook this again. - 2/14/14

  • This looks fab, but I think the nutritional information is a bit off. There's no way an entire drumstick with the skin intact is 22 calories. - 1/28/13
