Last time I made drumsticks, I used a cranberry-orange glaze but I wanted to do something different this time. I still wanted it to be sweet but not as fruity, so I chose a honey/soy glaze with sesame seeds. It came out moist, tender and sweet. Exactly what I wanted.

Honey-Soy glazed Drumsticks
adapted by Martha Stewart
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 garlic cloves, minced
salt 'n' peppa
1 Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Season drumsticks with salt and pepper, both sides.
2 Mix honey, soy sauce, garlic cloves, and some sesame seeds in a bowl.
3 Line a shallow roasting pan with aluminum foil and lay the drumsticks in alternating directions in a row. Pour honey mixture over all the chicken and bake about 30-40 minutes, basting every 10 minutes.
4 Once chicken is done, transfer the remaining sauce in the pan to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer for about 10 minutes until thickened. Serve chicken with sauce.
