60ml (1/4 cup) low sodium soy sauce
30ml (2 tablespoons) honey
15ml (1 tablespoon) sesame oil
45ml (3 tablespoons) lemon juice
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon red chilli flakes
1 clove garlic, minced

8 free range chicken drumsticks
sesame seeds, for finishing

How to
For the marinade, place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Arrange the drumsticks in a non-metallic dish. Pour the marinade over, cover with cling film and chill overnight.

Preheat the oven 180º C. Transfer the drumsticks to a roasting tin and pour over half the marinade. Cover with foil and roast for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, turn the drumsticks over and coat with the remaining marinade. Turn the oven up to 200º C and roast for another 25-30 minutes.

For crispy skin, place under the grill for several minutes. Scatter over the sesame seeds and serve.
