Ingredients

  • 4 lbs /2kg chicken drumsticks, skin-on
  • 1 cup Thai Sweet Chilli sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 juice of a lime

Instructions

  • Place the drumsticks, sweet chili sauce and soy sauce into a Ziploc bag, and allow to marinate for at least 4 hours (overnight is best).
  • You can bbq on a grill, but I am baking in the oven. Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place marinated chicken pieces on the paper and bake for about 45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked at 165°F (in the thickest part of the chicken when pierced). Baste with the Sweet Chili marinade while cooking.
  • Garnish with thinly sliced green onions or cilantro before serving.

Notes

When chicken is cooked, before serving, add a final glaze of Sweet Chilli Sauce and broil for a few minutes to get a nice golden color.
