South African Drumsticks

This is the first South African dish I have made (in 2010), although I have made this several time since I first made this. I won't give you an in-depth background to the recipe, as I done this with another post where I made South African Bobotie. One of the reasons why I have made this dish time and time again is the drumsticks are low fat, baked in the oven which means less work for me and there is a lovely blend of sweet and fire with each bite. I imagine that the marinade can be made with store cupboard ingredients and is a great new way of eating drumsticks. I served my African Drumsticks with cous cous and roasted butternut squash.
Here is how my South African drumsticks turned out:

Recipe for South African drumsticks:
30 ml Worcestershire sauce
30ml soy sauce
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tbsp English mustard
1 tsp ground ginger
3 tbsp apricot jam
8 chicken drumsticks
15ml oil


Marinade the chicken with all the ingredients and mix to cover all the drumsticks in an oven proof dish.

Leave to marinade for 24 hours so that the flavours can be fully absorbed.

When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 200C Gas mark 6 and place the dish in the oven for around 45minutes - 1 hour.

Once cooked, serve with cous cous or chips and a side salad.
