Hoisin sauce is available in Chinese groceries. It’s slightly sweet, and thick, somewhat like ketchup.
5 roaster drumsticks
salt and ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons dry sherry
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
Season chicken to taste with salt and pepper. In a shallow bowl combine remaining ingredients. Roll drumsticks in sauce, reserving excess. Wrap drumsticks individually in aluminum foil, adding a spoonful of sauce to each package. Grill 6 to 8-inches from hot coals, or bake 1 hour at 375oF, turning once. Unwrap drumsticks and place on grill, or broiling pan. Pour drippings from foil packages and remaining sauce into a small saucepan and heat. Grill or broil drumsticks turning and basting frequently with sauce for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
