Chicken Drumsticks with Lime & Ginger


  • 10 – 12 chicken legs
  • Juice of 5 limes
  • 1 large red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 2 large cloves of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons honey


  1. Put all the ingredients except the chicken into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Then put the meat and marinade in a Ziploc bag or bowl and every few hours turn it and massage the marinade into the meat.
  3. Preheat your oven to 180ºC. Spread out the chicken legs and marinade on a roasting tin, cover with tinfoil and roast for 20 minutes, remove tin foil and continue roasting for a further 20 minutes.
  4. If grilling, turn frequently and make sure that the juices run clear and there’s no pink meat before serving.
  5. Cool then put into the fridge if planning to use for picnics the next day.
