  1. Make 3 slashes on each of the drumsticks. Mix together the soy, honey, oil, tomato purée and mustard. Pour this mixture over the chicken and coat thoroughly. Leave to marinate for 30 mins at room temperature or overnight in the fridge. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.
  2. Tip the chicken into a shallow roasting tray and cook for 35 mins, turning occasionally, until the chicken is tender and glistening with the marinade.

Super yummy when I used tomato purée with chilli. Easy to make and quite satisfying.

Disappointed by my first attempt following the recipe, as some other posters have said- it is lacking in flavour. It was also too oily for me! I will try some of the other suggestions, it definitely needs something like chilli to give it a kick. I used wholegrain mustard which has a nice texture. Needs improvement...

Very nice and made a tasty dinner out of a cheap cut of meat.

I made these for a buffet and all the guests enjoyed them very much.
You do have to keep a close watch on them while in the oven as they do burn easily! I would definitely make them again as they are quite tasty!

This is a great recipe - very tasty and simple to make. The whole family loved it and the drumsticks were just as tasty cold the next day.
Will make again.

doubled the marinade quantity and left them overnight. Didn't look cooked after specified time so put them under the grill for a few mins basting them repeatedly with the sauce - this made the sauce much stickier and they ended up looking a lot more like the picture in the recipe.

Very tasty and easy. I had chicken breasts and diced them up and marinaded them in the sauce for a few hours then cooked them with the marinade in the oven and served with Chinese noodles. The family loved them.

Decent recipe

I doubled up on some of the ingredients

4 tsp soya sauce
2 tsp Honey

I also used less olive oil 1/2 tsp

(had plenty to marinade and baste with)

I also added

1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ginger powder
A few drops of hot pepper sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

If I wanted to make them sweet I can use brown sugar or more honey and exclude the pepper

Overall pleased with the outcome, a very simple recipe which you can alter to your taste

These were delicious. I doubled the recipe and used for 9 drumsticks plus a few mini fillets for the children. This meant that there was quite a lot of (runny) sauce in the bottom of the dish once cooked, which I then poured over the egg noodles and stir-fried vegetables that I served with the chicken. Perfect and delicious, and of course dead easy. Definitely making again.

Used chilli puree instead of plain tomato, golden syrup instead of honey, no mustard and thighs as well as drumsticks, the boys loved the extra spicy kick of the chilli! Went well with potato wedges.
