Prep Time: overnight
Cook Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 fresh chicken wings
  • 6 fresh chicken drumsticks

Marinade Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • Thumb sized piece of fresh ginger (peeled and grated)
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1½ tsp Chinese five spice
  • 2 tsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp orange marmalade
  • ½ tsp grated orange zest
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

Instructions

  1. Slash the chicken drumstick and chicken wing skin a few times with a sharp knife and place in a non-metallic bowl. Mix together all of the ingredients for the BBQ marinade, pouring over the chicken portions. Leave the chicken to marinate overnight, basting and turning occasionally (if time allows).
  2. Preheat your oven to 200°p;c / 400°f / gas mark 6.
  3. Lightly grease a roasting tray.
  4. Transfer the chicken to the roasting tray and add a few spoonfuls of the marinade. Place in the oven for about 50 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with the marinade until thoroughly sticky and golden. You may need to add extra marinade to the tray during cooking.
  5. Once cooked, eat the chicken portions hot or leave to cool for later.

Notes

Please ensure the chicken is cooked thoroughly. If unsure, piece a drumstick with a skewer and if the juices are still pink then continue to cook.
