  • 4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 tsp finely-grated fresh root ginger
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • zest 1 lime
  • 8 chicken drumsticks


This marinade is also delicious with pork. Try marinating spare ribs and slow-roasting them until the meat is sticky and falling off the bone.


  1. Mix together the chilli sauce, ginger, soy sauce and lime zest. Pour over the chicken drumsticks and leave to marinate for as long as you can (put them in the fridge if marinating for any longer than 30 mins).

  2. Place the drumsticks in a shallow baking tray, shaking off any excess marinade. Roast for 20 mins, then pour over the leftover marinade and cook for 5 mins more until sticky and browned.
