For the marinade

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 inch fresh root ginger , grated
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp chili paste
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • oil for greasing the pan


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C).
  • Score the surface of the drumsticks with a sharp knife in 3 or 4 places, to help the flavor penetrate, and set aside.
  • In a small bowl mix together ¬†honey, ginger, soy sauce, chili paste and vinegar.
  • Coat the drumsticks with the marinade and place on a greased baking dish. If you are not in a hurry you may want to put the drumsticks with the marinade in a plastic bag for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors combine better.
  • Place the drumsticks in the preheated oven, and after 30 minutes of baking start basting the drumsticks with reserved marinade, for few times while baking,¬† until sticky, caramelized and nicely browned, for another 10 or 15 minutes more.
  • Remove, sprinkle chopped spring onion or chives on top and serve alongside a fresh salad.
