What you'll need

  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • 6 chicken wings

For the marinade

  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 3cm piece of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1.5 tsp Chinese 5-spice
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp orange marmalade
  • ½ tsp orange zest
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

Time: 30 mins

Serves: 12



Start things off by making the marinade. It’s always best to do this the day before, so your meat has plenty of time to take on all those lovely flavours overnight. This marinade couldn’t be simpler - you just need to mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl, and add a bit of extra vegetable oil if you find it not runny enough.


Chuck the chicken wings into bowl, followed by the chicken drumsticks which need to be slashed a few times with a very sharp knife. Coat well with the marinade, and leave to sit for at least two hours (preferably overnight).


Cook the chicken wings and drumsticks on your barbecue for at least twenty minutes, making sure you brush the meat with any leftover marinade as it cooks. You can also cook it in the oven for 50 minutes at 200C. Serve very hot with some crusty bread and a fresh green salad. Perfection!
