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.
Mix together the maple syrup, Tabasco and salt and drizzle half of the mixture over chicken. Roast until the bacon is darkened and chicken is cooked through, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Drizzle or brush remaining maple sauce over hot chicken. Serve sprinkled with scallions and parsley.
Use pure maple syrup. Why? Because it's the real stuff, dripped from a maple tree, cooked down to sweet goodness and filtered into that beautiful little bottle. Those pancake syrups are tasty, but imitation maple syrup is pretty much just corn syrup and flavoring. It will create an overly sweet, very sticky situation in this recipe.
