This is one of my favorite recipes! I make these wings for almost every party I have and they disappear in minutes. I've also made full-size drumsticks and bone-in thighs; I just increase the times a bit (don't be afraid of the char!). So delicious!

this recipe was great. i used chicken drumsticks instead of wings and they turned out wonderful. my 6yr old picky boy even ate them right up. the garam masala added a wonderful flavor.

Is it 1 tsp of garam masala or 1 tsp plus 1 tbsp?
