Caramelized Baked Chicken Legs



I’d planned to make ordinary baked chicken wings tonight but, on a whim, I did a quick search to get a new idea.  I came across this recipe and thought it sounded good- different from the norm but still something the kids would like.  I marinated the chicken in the sauce for a couple of hours before cooking it but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly.  I served these legs with fried cabbage and roasted red potatoes.
