Delicious sweet and sticky chicken drumsticks made with chilli sauce, honey and balsamic vinegar. Finger licking good!


  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated


  1. Preheat the oven to 180c. Place the chicken drumsticks into an oven dish. Make several slits in each drumstick with a knife to allow the marinade to soak in.
  2. Mix all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and pour over the chicken. Turn the drumsticks so that they are fully coated in the marinade. At this point you can cover the dish with cling film and refrigerate for up to 6 hours.
  3. Or alternatively cook the chicken straight away by baking it in the oven for 30-40 mins or until the juices run clearly, turning once.
