Honey Soy Drumsticks


  • Chicken Drumsticks

(specifying measurements to give an idea of proportion, adjust to taste and/or qty needed accordingly)

  • Honey , 5 tbsp
  • Soy sauce, 3 tbsp
  • Oil, 1 tbsp
  • Garlic, minced, ½ tsp
  • Ginger, minced, 1 tsp
  • Red Chili Flakes, 1 tbsp
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Wash ,clean & dry chicken drumsticks and make 3-4 slits.

In a bowl, whisk together the rest of ingredients and marinate the chicken for a 3-4 hours. (check the marinade for balance/taste once before adding chicken to it)

Preheat oven to 180°C. 

Line a baking dish with thick quality foil.  

Place the chicken on the lined baking dish along with all the marinade.  

Bake at 180°C for about an hour or till done –turn the sides once about midway during baking. Sprinkle a cpl of tbsps of water if needed.

If you want to have a little sauce with the chicken, put the chicken a roasting tray and cover tightly. Bake till done - the marinade combined with the juices released by the chicken will give you just about enough sauce for an extra coating for the chicken. Uncover and bake for last 15 minutes to crisp up the chicken. 


  1. what is the thick sauce that you were adding at the last.. i thought the chicken was marinated with all the ingredients earlier.. should i retain some for the last ? !

    1. the juices that release from the chicken. Add some hot water...and either on the hob or in the oven boil to reduce. Let me know how it goes.
