  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Mix the first five ingredients; sprinkle over chicken. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown drumsticks in batches. Transfer to a roasting pan.
  2. Meanwhile, combine pineapple, 1/2 cup water, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and mustard; pour over chicken. Cover; bake until tender, about 1-1/2 to 2 hours, uncovering during the last 20-30 minutes of baking to let skin crisp.

"My husband can't stop raving about these! He loved the flavor and the meat was almost falling of the bone, they were so tender. I am a vegetarian so I halved the recipe but he told me next time to make them all! The cook time is a little longer then some dinner dishes but this worked perfect for a Sunday afternoon in the kitchen."
