  • 3 tbsp clear honey
  • 3 tbsp light soy sauce
  • ½ tbsp finely grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ tsp Chinese five spice
  • 1kg chicken drumsticks
  • 4 nests of medium egg noodles
  • 50g spring onions, finely sliced


  1. Heat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, and fan 180°C. Whisk the honey, soy, ginger, garlic, and five Chinese spice with 3 tbsp water in a large bowl, then add the chicken drumsticks and toss them together well. Tip into a roasting tray where the chicken fits snugly (to prevent excess marinade burning). Roast for 35-40 mins (turning halfway through) until the chicken is cooked through and they are sticky and glossy.
  2. When the chicken drumsticks have 5 mins left, bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, and cook the noodles for 3-4 mins until tender. Drain well and serve with the chicken, scattering with spring onions to serve.
