  • 2-3 lbs chicken drumsticks or wings
  • 1 cup duck sauce or Saucy Susan
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder optional
  • 2 tbsp olive oil see NOTES


  • In a small bowl, mix the duck sauce, soy sauce and garlic powder (if using).
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with non-stick parchment and I also advise spraying the parchment with non-stick spray as well.
  • Place drumsticks (or wings) on prepared pan. Brush with olive oil.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Coat the chicken with the sauce either by brushing it on or drizzling it over the chicken, but make sure that it's coated well.
  • Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until coating is bubbly and chicken is nicely browned.


Crockpot method--do NOT brush chicken with the olive oil. Place chicken in the bottom of a large (6-7 quart) crock pot or casserole crock. Ideally, they should be in a single layer so I recommend the casserole crock. Cook on high for about 3 hours then drain off any liquid that accumulated. Pour sauce over chicken and cook for an additional 1-2 hours, or until chicken is done.
