Chinese chicken drumstick traybake

Chicken drumsticks are a great wallet-friendly way to feed the family - make the most of them in this sticky Chinese chicken drumstick traybake, with a glossy honey, ginger and soy dressing. Serve with simple noodles and scatter with spring onions to finish.

  1. Heat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Whisk the honey, soy, ginger, garlic and Chinese five spice with 3 tbsp water in a large bowl, then add the chicken drumsticks and toss 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.
