6 chicken drumsticks

MARINADE

2 cloves garlic, crushed or 3/4 teaspoon granulated garlic

1 1/2 tablespoons ginger, minced or 1/2 tsp. powdered ginger

1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes

1 1/2 tablespoons honey

1/4 cup soy sauce

GARNISH

sesame seeds

spring onions, green parts chopped

In a mixing bowl, combine the garlic, ginger, chili, honey, and soy sauce.

Mix in the chicken drumsticks.

Cover with cling film and leave to marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours

Fry the chicken in a large pan, on all sides for about 10-15 minutes, stirring often to prevent the marinade from burning, until golden brown.

Remove from the pan and pour in the marinade.

Bring to a boil and stir, until the marinade is thick and resembles a sauce.

Throw the chicken back in the pan and fry for a further 5-10 minutes in the sauce, making sure each drumstick is evenly coated and cooked through.

Garnish with sesame seeds and spring onions.
