The Brown Sugar Chicken was delicious. I skinned the drumsticks, and used zest from a blood orange. I also sprayed the skinned drumsticks with butter flavor cooking spray, to help the brown sugar mixture to stick better. I think next time, I'd use some curry powder... or a little Teeny Tiny Spice Company Vindaloo.... mmmmm... instead of the chili powder.

Surprisingly, this wasn't a favorite of my kids. They thought it was too sweet. Weird, huh? I just loved it. So did my dinner guests.
I couldn't get enough of the Honey Roasted Potatoes, and neither could my kids. The original recipe called for red potatoes, but I used white potatoes, cut into chunks, skins left on. The original recipe called for half the sauce I used, but more was definitely better. I also broiled the potatoes at the end for a couple minutes, to give them a little extra crispiness.
