Alex Hollywood’s Sticky Wings n’ Drumsticks
Serves 6–8

I tend to prepare these in large batches. They’re great hot or cold, especially with potato salad. Don’t forget the napkins!

Ingredients

  • 800g chicken drumsticks
  • 450g chicken wings
  • 250ml tomato ketchup
  • 150ml maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • juice of 1 small lime or lemon
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil or olive oil
  • 1 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger, or a splash of orange juice
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

Preheat the oven to 190ºC/Gas mark 5.
Skin the drumsticks and place them in an ovenproof dish with the wings.
Put all the remaining ingredients into a bowl, season generously and mix well. Pour the mixture over the chicken pieces and mix thoroughly.
Roast for 35–40 minutes, basting a couple of times. Serve on a big platter with Twice-baked Potatoes.
