Honey Soy Chicken Drumsticks with Jasmine Rice and Steamed Greens

One of my favourite childhood dinners was ‘sticky chicken’, essentially chicken drumsticks with a sticky Thai marinade. I’ve tried to recreate that recipe here and I think I’ve nailed it! I’ve also adapted the recipe to be super-duper quick for weeknight dinners.

I hope you like it xx

Serves 6



8 chicken drumsticks

1/4 cup tamari

1/4 cup fish sauce

1/4 cup honey

2 tbsp lemongrass, finely chopped (optional)

1 tbsp ginger, grated

1 tsp chilli flakes

1 1/2 cups raw rice or can use microwave packs

Green vegetables (approx. 4 cups)


1. Preheat oven to 200c

2. Mix together tamari, fish sauce, honey, lemongrass, ginger and chilli.

3. Place chicken in a lined baking tray and pour over the marinade.

4. Bake chicken for 25 mins, turning halfway.

5. Meanwhile, in a saucepan add rice to 2 1/4 cups of water and simmer until all water is evaporated

6. Steam green vegetables and serve!
