Orange Ginger Drumettes

This dish is great as a snack and finger food. Very simple, lazy way of doing it up.

Ingredients: serves 1

6 chicken drumsticks

1 orange

1 + 3 tablespoon sugar

1″ ginger


  • Zest the orange and extract the juice. Place zest & juice in a ovenproof bowl or container.
  • Remove the skin of the ginger and grate. Add to the orange juice & zest.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of the sugar to the marinade.
  • Add the drumsticks and allow to marinade for at least an hour. Remember to turn them or toss them every now and again.
  • Heat oven to 200ºC (400ºF) and place the drumsticks (in the ovenproof container) into the cold oven.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Pour the juice into a small saucepan, add the remaining 3 tablespoon of sugar.
  • Boil the sauce till it thickens. Watch that it doesn’t overflow. It doesn’t have to be on high heat just high enough for the sauce to boil.
