Sticky Honey, Soy and Ginger Marinade


Serves 6

1/2 cup Mother Earth Clover Blend Honey
1/3 cup dark soy sauce
1 Tbsp finely grated fresh ginger
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
Juice of 1 lemon
1 kg chicken drumsticks
2 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds, to garnish

1. Combine marinade ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring until honey melts. Boil for 1 minute then pour into a sterilised jar and leave to cool completely.
2. When ready to use in cooking, place chicken in a ceramic dish. Pour over marinade and toss chicken well to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes, to marinate. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 190°C.
3. Place chicken in a single layer in a roasting pan lined with non-stick baking paper. Roast for 45 minutes, or until cooked through.
4. Sprinkle chicken with sesame seeds and serve with slaw or a green salad on the side.

Tip: This marinade works well with chicken wings or nibbles, and is also great for marinating pork spare ribs.
