1 pkg. (about 1 3/4 lbs.) PERDUE® HARVESTLAND® Chicken Drumsticks
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoon bourbon
2 tablespoons molasses
1/4 cup ketchup

INSTRUCTIONS
Step 1: 
Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove skin from chicken. Place drumsticks in a shallow baking dish.
Step 2: 
In a small saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter and cook onion until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in ketchup, bourbon, molasses, brown sugar, chili powder and salt. Simmer, stirring frequently for 3- 5 minutes until slightly reduced and thickened.
Step 3: 
Pour sauce over chicken. Bake uncovered 25-30 minutes until chicken is cooked to 180°F internal temperature. Stir sauce on bottom and corners of pan half-way through cooking to prevent sticking.
