  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 pounds chicken drumsticks
  • 1 cup chicken broth


  • Mix together first 10 ingredients in a large bowl or resealable bag. Add chicken and toss to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, preferably up to 8 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
