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.
