  1. In a large bowl mix together all the marinade ingredients. Stir in the chicken until thoroughly coated. If you have time, cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Turn occasionally to let all the flavours soak in. (You can simply marinate and cook straightaway if you prefer).
  2. When you’re ready to cook, preheat oven to 180oC. Spread the marinated chicken drumsticks with the marinade in a single layer on a flat oven proof dish. Bake for about 50 minutes turning often and basting with the pan juices until the chicken is dark brown, sticky and cooked through.
  3. Serve sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds and spring onion slices, with steamed rice and Asian vegetables.

Serves 4. Preparation time 10 minutes. Cooking time 50 minutes.
