Ingredients

  • 400g can coconut cream
  • 1-2 tbsp Thai green curry paste (depending on how hot you like it)
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 6 chicken drumsticks

Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix the coconut cream, curry paste, lime zest and juice and 1 tbsp honey together in a large bowl, then spoon a quarter of the marinade into a second smaller bowl and set aside. Add the chicken to the large bowl and leave to marinate for at least 2 hrs, or chill for up to 24 hrs.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a baking tray with foil. Arrange the chicken on the tray, and bake for 30 mins, turning the chicken over halfway through.

  • STEP 3

    Mix the remaining honey into the reserved small bowl of marinade. Brush half of this over the chicken, then return to the oven for 10 mins more. Turn the chicken over and brush with the rest of the marinade, then bake for another 10 mins. Serve warm or leave to cool completely before packing into a container for a picnic.
