Golden Drumsticks and Apple and Sour Cream Coleslaw

With the weather getting warmer, its time for salads and BBQs.  I got the idea for this coleslaw from Better Homes and Gardens a few weeks ago.  The drumsticks can be cooked in the oven or on the BBQ and be eaten hot or cold.  Cold they are great to take on a picnic, and go well with the coleslaw.
