    Delicious! Next time I will save the marinade, throw it on the stove with a little cornstarch to make a thicker glaze!

    My family enjoyed this chicken dish very much. The only modification to the recipe I made was to bake longer. The chicken legs did not dry up, due to the sauce....but baked long enough to cook out the gristle and stuff you don't want to bite into.

    Rather tasty. We enjoyed the marinade flavor. 4 star cause it did not wow us.
    12 hours wasnt long enough for the marinade
