1 kg chicken drumsticks, skin on
1 tbsp peanut oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
1 tbsp rice wine or dry sherry
2 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tsp five spice powder
2 tbsp honey
For the marinade, place all of the marinade ingredients into a large bowl and stir to combine. Add the chicken and cover the bowl with cling film, then place into the fridge to marinate for at least 15-20 minutes, ideally overnight.
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
Place the chicken drumsticks onto a roasting tray and roast for 30 minutes, or until the skin is golden and the chicken is cooked through. (To check, pierce the drumstick at its thickest part, next to the bone. The juices should run clear.)
