Honey-Lime Roast Chicken

Ingredients to make Honey-Lime Roast Chicken

  • 6 chicken drumsticks (approx 500 g)
  • 8-10 garlic cloves
  • 1.5 inch ginger
  • 3 green chillies (adjust according to your heat quotient)
  • 1.5 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp freshly crushed black pepper
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp chilli Powder
  • Juice from ½ a lime cheek
  • Zest of one lime
  • 2 tbsp oil

How to make Honey-Lime Roast Chicken

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C.
  2. Clean the chicken and score well down to the bone.
  3. Make a paste using the garlic, ginger, green chillies, honey, pepper, and chilli powder and marinate the chicken well with this.
  4. Add the lime zest, lime juice and chopped coriander to the marinated chicken and keep aside for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Now, put the oil in a frying pan and heat.
  6. Once it is hot enough, put in the chicken and seal it off till it is golden brown on all sides.
  7. Transfer into a baking tray covered in aluminium foil and cook for around 30-45 minutes.
  8. Turn the pieces over at half time.
  9. The chicken will be ready once the meat starts falling off the bone, and if you look closely the bone and meat should not remain pink.
  10. Remove (don't forget the sauce i.e. the chicken juices) and serve hot. Goes well as a starter or just with some simple dal and rice.

My Tip:

If you do not have an oven, you can continue to cook the chicken in the pan till it is tender. Once the chicken is sealed, just cover the pan for around 10-15 min, till it is cooked through.
