Sweet and sour barbecued drumsticks

These chicken drumsticks can be grilled or cooked in the oven.  It's kind of nice to have alternatives in the wintertime...

Sweet and Sour Barbecued Drumsticks

2 lbs chicken drumsticks
2 t vegetable oil
1 T fresh ginger, grated or minced
1 clove of garlic, crushed or minced
1/4 t red pepper flakes
1/4 c pineapple juice
1/4 c ketchup
1 T lime juice
1 t Worcestershire sauce
2 T soy sauce
2 T brown sugar

Mix oil through brown sugar in a ziploc bag.  Dip out about 1/3 c and refrigerate.  Add drumsticks to the bag and turn to coat.  Marinate for several hours in the refrigerator, turning from time to time.

When ready to cook, either grill the chicken, brushing on the reserved sauce in the last few minutes, or bake in the oven.  Place foil in a baking pan and spread out the chicken.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.  Brush with reserved sauce on all sides, increase the temperature to 400, and continue baking for another 25 minutes.

Easy and delicious, I'm sure. Just bought 2 packages of skinless drumsticks. I'll be trying these soon.
