Gordon Ramsay’s Sticky Baked Chicken

I saw Gordon Ramsay make this one day on Rachael Ray’s talk show. It was super easy and a fast weeknight dinner. The only thing I changed was to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs instead of chicken legs as I’m not such a huge fan of chicken legs. We served this with corn and had a nice, filling meal.

Gordon Ramsay’s Sticky Baked Chicken

Olive oil, to drizzle

10 chicken drumsticks

Sea salt and black pepper

For the glaze:

6 tablespoons honey

3 tablespoons fish sauce

4 teaspoons light soy sauce

Juice of 1 1/2 lemons

3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

4 teaspoons sesame oil

Heat the oven to 400°F. Lightly oil a large baking dish. Season the drumsticks with salt and pepper and arrange in the dish in a single layer. Drizzle over a little olive oil and bake in the hot oven for 20 minutes.

Prepare the glaze in the meantime. Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl until evenly combined.

Take the chicken out of the oven and pour over the glaze, to coat each drumstick. Return to the oven and bake for another 20 to 30 minutes, turning several times, until the chicken is tender and nicely glazed.

Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving. For a balanced meal, serve with steamed rice and purple sprouting broccoli or green beans.
