Method

  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.

Really easy and very, very tasty. We had them with sautéed potatoes and salad.

I put the soy sauce in a whipped egg. Dusted dsticks with plain flour, then dipped drum sticks in egg-soy, then dipped in Paxo sage and onion stuffing, and in oven for 30 mins.

I generally us coarse-grain mustard rather than Dijon, and lime marmalade instead of honey.
This is delicious also using sausages - add a good dash of tabasco and some minced garlic.

Great for relaxed sharing, whatever the meat, or for picnics - just make sure you've got finger bowls or hand wash gel!

Very easy. Left out the oil and it worked fine. Cooked the legs in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

delicious - my marinade was also on the runny side so I poured it into a small saucepan and thickened with cornflour paste - came out PERFECT... poured back on chicken and heated through again in the oven.

I have just finished making and eating these, they are lovely! Very runny so keep some kitchen roll or a tea towel handy because they are messy! A great meal for families, married couples and couples that have been together for a while, wouldn't recommend these for a first date because you look like a little kid whilst you eat them with sauce all over your face!

Marinated Chicken Wings overnight... were delish!!! added extra honey though as i though the dijon mustard made them taste like wasabi.

Mine weren't anywhere near the colour in the photo (possibly because I used light soy sauce) but they tasted great and went down a treat.

I doubled the ingredients and altered the amount a bit: 5 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tbsp honey, 1 tbsp Dijon mustard, 1 tbsp tomato purée, 1 tsp olive oil. Added 1/2 tsp grilled meat spices for a bit of edge. Delicious, will make again!

Delicious recipe. Used thighs and drumsticks, less oil than recommended and added fresh chilli and ginger. Will definitely do it again.

Very yummy indeed! Good consistency marinade. Am about to make up a batch and bung in freezer for a 'grab-a-meal' moment!

Have made this a number of times and every time the family love it. It is also very good cold for packed lunch. Will try this with pork spare ribs soon.

cooked this for a family BBQ and it went down a treat. I cooked them in the oven and finished them off on the BBQ

I used free range chicken and marinated for a good 6 hours but I thought it wasn't very strong in the flavours. My bf and I eat a lot of chilli, garlic, ginger Thai/Chinese food so maybe this wasn't 'tasty' enough for us. My parents loved it though and they eat milder foods :) will try a different recipe.

This was really yummy! I made it last night for myself, husband and 6 year old daughter and was enjoyed by everyone. I served it with homemade cruncy coleslaw (GF July 2007) and potato wedges. Will definately make again.
