  • 12 skinless chicken drumsticks
  • 12 strips bacon
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ cup chopped scallions white and green parts
  • 2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
  1. Heat oven to 400ºF. Wrap the tops of each drumstick with a strip of bacon. Place chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet with the end of the bacon strip under the drumsticks.
