  • 3 tbsp Sherry or rice wine
  • 5 tbsp stem ginger in syrup, chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1-2 red chillies, deseeded and chopped

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Slash the skin on each chicken thigh 2-3 times. Mix the marinade ingredients together in a large bowl. Toss the chicken in the marinade until completely coated, then either cook straight away or cover and chill for a few hrs to marinate.

  2. To cook, place the chicken in a shallow roasting tin in a single layer and pour over the marinade. Bake for 35-40 mins. Drizzle with honey, place under a medium grill and cook for 3 mins more, until the skin is golden and crisp.

  3. Place the chicken on a serving plate and tip all the cooking juices into a small saucepan, pouring off any excess fat. Over a medium heat, bubble down the juices until thick and syrupy. Drizzle over the chicken and scatter with coriander.

I used dark soy sauce instead of tamari, 2 tbsp of rice vinegar instead of wine, and about 5cm of fresh ginger instead of stem ginger in syrup, it was absolutely delicious.

Lovely recipe. I used soy sauce instead of tamari sauce and lemon juice instead of wine. A dish which you can easily adjust ingredients to suite your taste.

We thoroughly enjoyed this meal, and will definitely be making this again and again. Stem ginger was used; a tbsp of mirin & a tbsp of soy sauce mixed together instead of tamari, and mead (from Christmas) as an alternative to instead of sherry. Just Yummy

Just wondering why you only give it 2 stars if you liked it so much?

Really delicious but beware the last stage - it can go from "thick and syrupy" to "thick and unusable" very quickly if not watched!

Used Ginger Conserve in the marinade instead of stem ginger, so I didn't need to add the extra sweetness of honey at the end. Other alterations were soy sauce instead of tamari and used saki as the rice wine. The result was really simple to make and really delicious to eat, even though I didn't have time to marinade the chicken.

Hi I made this for the first time last night for OH and me. OH gave it 11 out of 10 so he was very impressed and so was I. I did change some of the ingredients as OH doesn't like ginger and is unable to have anything too spicy which is a shame as I love both. I used the juice of one fresh lemon for the zing, soy sauce instead of tamari and red pepper instead of the chillies. I know it sounds like I reinvented something else but it was delicious. Will be making it again soon.

Really delicious! I used soy sauce instead of tamaria & fresh ginger instead of the stem ginger. Went down a treat for a quick and easy dinner. I served it with a side grenn salad and crusty bread. Be warned, make extra as everyone will want more!
