  • 6 chicken drumsticks, preferably free-range
  • 6 chicken wings, preferably free-range
  • For the marinade:
  • 3 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 fresh ginger, 3cm piece, peeled & grated
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 1/2 tsp Chinese five-spice
  • 1/2 tsp dried red chili flakes
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp orange marmalade
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)


    1. Slash the chicken drumsticks 3-4 times each with a sharp knife and place in a non-metallic bowl with the chicken wings. Mix together all the marinade ingredients and pour over the chicken. Leave to marinate for min. 2 hours, or overnight if you can.
    2. Once marinated, place the chicken on the barbeque over medium-hot coals and cook for about 20 min, brushing all over with the marinade as it cooks. (if it's colouring too quickly, move to a cooler part of the barbecue to cook gently.)
    3. Cook until the marinade and skin have caramelized to a slightly dark crisp.
    4. If you're unsure whether they're done, pierce a drumstick with a skewer: if the juices are still pink, carry on cooking for a few more minutes.
    5. Sprinkle with a few sesame seeds before serving.
