Delicious Finger Smacking Honey Soy Drumsticks
I love using chicken pieces on the bone in my cooking as they are really really cheap! I managed to get a whole kilogram of chicken legs for only $2! And they freeze well too – so when you see them on sale – buy up big.
Chicken on the bone is always much tastiest than boneless chicken – and because it is cheaper too – more people really should try including chicken pieces in their weekly menu’s.
Serve Honey Soy Drumsticks with jasmine rice, steamed vegetables or even a nice Fried Rice.
.Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper and place the drumsticks on the tray - evenly spaced.
In a bowl mix together the soy sauce, honey, orange juice and garlic. Pour the mixture over the top of the drumsticks.
Bake for approximately 35 minutes or until the drumsticks are evenly cooked (turn a few times whilst cooking).
Pour the marinade into a small saucepan and reduce by half.
In a small cup dissolve the cornflour into 2 tablespoons of water, add to the marinade mixture, heat to thicken, then pour over the drumsticks when serving.
