  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the chicken in a baking dish and score with a sharp knife.
  2. In a bowl, combine the sriracha, soy sauce, honey, lime zest and juice. Pour over the chicken and toss to coat. Roast for 35-40 mins, basting regularly, until the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat remaining.
