Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic & ginger paste
  • 8 skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1 large head broccoli , cut into florets
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • rice , to serve (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mix the soy, honey, 1 tbsp of the oil and ½ tbsp garlic & ginger paste in a bowl. Pour over the chicken thighs and leave to marinate if you have time, but don’t worry if not – they will be delicious either way. Tip the chicken with all the marinade into a roasting tin, skin-side up. Cook for 45 mins until sticky and the skin is crispy.

  • STEP 2

    When the chicken has 15 mins left, start cooking the rice following pack instructions, if using, and heat the remaining oil in a frying pan. Add the remaining garlic & ginger paste, sizzle for 1 min, then tip in the broccoli along with a splash of water. Cover and cook for 10 mins until tender, then take the lid off, tip the sesame seeds into the pan and give everything a good toss around. Season. Serve with the chicken, and all the caramelised bits from the bottom of the tin.
