- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 2
- 4 chicken drumsticks
- 2 tbsp clear honey , plus 1tsp
- 2 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce if not gluten free)
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 120g basmati rice
- 70g kale , chopped
- juice 2 limes
- 100g radishes , halved
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the drumsticks in a roasting tin. Mix 2 tbsp honey, the tamari, 1 tbsp veg oil and 1 tbsp sesame oil in a bowl, then pour over the chicken – make sure each piece is covered. Roast for 25-30 mins.
- STEP 2
Meanwhile, cover the rice with 240ml water and bring to the boil. Cook for 8-10 mins until tender. Massage the kale with 1 tbsp veg oil for 5 mins until softening (this makes it less chewy). Drizzle over the lime juice, remaining sesame oil and honey, and season. Add the radishes and set aside.
- STEP 3
Fry the rice in the remaining veg oil in a non-stick pan to dry out. Add to the kale, and toss to combine.
- STEP 4
Serve the drumsticks with the salad and scatter over the sesame seeds.
