Serve tonight: Preheat oven to 425°. Combine first 5 ingredients in a gallon resealable freezer bag; add chicken. Seal and toss to coat. Place bag in a shallow dish and refrigerate 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Remove chicken from bag; reserve the marinade in a small saucepan. Grease a foil-lined baking pan with Roasted Garlic Infused Oil. Place drumsticks on foil. Bake 25-30 minutes. Meanwhile, bring marinade to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Whisk 1 Tbsp. cornstarch and 1 Tbsp. cold water together, slowly whisk into sauce until thickened. Brush on drumsticks; bake 8-10 minutes, turn drumsticks and brush with sauce. Bake for an additional 8-10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°. Sprinkle with sesame seeds when serving. Makes 6 servings.

Serve with oven-roasted potatoes or vegetables. Add Garlic Garlic™ Seasoning or Spinach & Herb Seasoning for added flavor.

Freeze for later: Combine first 5 ingredients in a gallon resealable freezer bag, add chicken. Seal well, label and freeze. Thaw completely. Prepare as directed above.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY good as a FREEZER meal! Bonus: kid friendly! The whole family loved this! Even my pickiest eater. It's definitely kid friendly but something all can enjoy! I made this as a freezer meal 3+ wks ago, thawed it last night, and cooked it today. Came out as if I had never frozen it! I'll need to stock up on the brown sugar honey mustard sauce, to make this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Drumsticks! This chicken is sweet and sassy. The stickiness comes from the sugars, brought out by the the balsamic and the Brown Sugar Honey Mustard. This recipe gives the chicken a delicious sweetness, that when eating is impossible to stop. It is so addictive, even my kids loved it!
