"I heard of this recipe on a radio station 3AW. I cooked this on the B.B.Q. but it can be cooked either in an oven or B.B.Q. A little more healthier than most marinade with a secret ingredient of fish sauce, which is optional but you have to use it as it gives a beautiful umamai flavour & really...... you can't taste the fishy taste at all! I really think this could be done well with chicken breast also."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Mix together the soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic and fish sauce in a large dish.

Step 2

Score the chicken drumsticks two or three times so that the marinade can get right in. Add the chicken to the marinade and turn to coat, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours (no longer), turning a several times during the time.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced.

Step 4

Line a baking tray with baking paper if cooking in the oven or crank up the Barbie to a medium heat if cooking on the Barbie.

Step 5

If cooking in the oven, remove chicken from marinade. Place, in a single layer, on prepared tray. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (optional). Bake for 35 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

Step 6

If BBQ'ing remove chicken from the marinade and cook over a medium heat to ensure that the chicken cooks through to the bone without burning on the outside.

Step 7

Although you may like a bit of char on BBQ and think its great flavour, so its up to you! If BBQ'ing – sprinkle the sesame seeds on at the end!
