These were borderline too spicy for me but very good! I did use 'I can't Believe It's Not Butter" spray in lieu of the butter (0 calories) but evenso the website that I use to track my calories clocked this at 260 calories per 2- leg serving. I am not sure where the discrepancy is. Next time I will use less hot sauce and omit the Splenda because I do not feel it needs it. But overall good recipe! Thanks! Read More

This recipe was really good! The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I can't think of an easy way to skin drumsticks! I'm on a high proten low carb diet & this recipe was just what I needed! I substitued honey for the Splenda & I couldn't find garlic chili sauce so I just bought regular & added a few cloves of minced garlic. It was still good. I will DEFINITELY be making this again!

It is super spicy hot so you have to love hot foods but its really good though. I did use regular sugar though and cooked boneless chicken tenders instead and put it on "Quick Chinese-Style Vermicelli" which is on this website as well and has some reviews as being bland but really good. It's not bland with this chicken on top. Read More

Very good and very hot! I followed the recipe except sprinkled the chicken with granulated garlic before adding the sauce. I used my favorite hot sauce Franks. I think next time I will use more of the Franks sauce and less of the chili garlic sauce. I dusted off my electric skillet for this and worked perfectly giving the chicken an nice gummy HOT coating. Of course it took longer to cook than listed chicken usually does if you like it well done. Great Recipe! Read More

Excellent. For the one who did not know how to skin chicken legs: Pull the skin by hand as far to the end of the bone as you can on all the drumsticks. Take 1-2 paper towels grab the skin right at the edge of the bone while using the paper towels to hold it. Pull and if you do so slow strong and steadily the skin comes right off.:) Read More

I am really happy with this recipe. It was so easy healthy(ish) and delicious. I made a half batch but forgot to halve the sugar. It was still very good. I mixed the legs with a little Accent garlic and onion powder about three hours before cooking. I also used bacon fat to brown the chicken. My picky boyfriend gave this the thumbs-up and I'll definitely be making it again. Read More
