Char Siu Glazed Chicken Legs

Simple, fast, and delicious. This sticky sweet recipe is quick to pull together and tastes like it took hours to prepare. Make the Char Siu sauce days in advance to save on time and let the legs relax with the sauce before popping them in the oven. Baste with the vinegar/Char Siu glaze and garnish with some fresh scallions.
