Honey Soy Chicken Drumsticks

One of my favourite childhood dinners was ‘sticky chicken’, essentially chicken drumsticks with a sticky Thai marinade. I’ve tried to recreate that recipe here and I think I’ve nailed it!

Easy option:

Use microwave rice and frozen veggies for a super-duper quick weeknight dinner

Meal prep:

The entire meal keeps well in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days

Adaptations:

You can swap the drumsticks for any other cut of chicken like wings, breast of thigh – whichever is on special of your family prefers
