Sticky Glazed Chicken Drumsticks

My favourite kind of food is the sort that you eat with your fingers.

Lip smacking, finger licking, tasty food that can be shared with others. Simple food that isn’t formal or pretentious. The kind that works for picnics and family barbecues.

We have a favourite recipe that we bring to the table every year but I just thought I’d share it here on the blog, as it’s just had a little facelift, thanks to a new product that’s recently hit the shops.

It’s a Sticky Glazed Chicken recipe and two of the key ingredients are ketchup and honey.

But those clever bods at Hellmann’s have just combined the two, which means their Hellmann’s Ketchup Sweetened with Honey works perfectly! No need for two separate ingredients.

I love the fact that this new ketchup is sweetened only by honey. Plus it contains 30% less sugar than regular tomato ketchup too and has 36% more tomatoes, which means more of the good stuff and less of the bad. 

It’s made my Sticky Glazed Chicken Drumsticks even easier to make and even more delicious (if that’s possible!).

Here’s what you do.


You will need:

6-8 chicken drumsticks
2 tablespoons of virgin olive oil
6 tablespoons of dark soy sauce
2 cloves of garlic
3 tablespoons of Hellmann’s Ketchup Sweetened with Honey
2 tablespoons of marmalade
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5

The method:

1. Mix the Hellmann’s Ketchup Sweetened with Honey together with the soy sauce, olive oil, marmalade and crushed garlic.

Then season with salt and pepper and mix together well.

2. Lay the chicken pieces into an oven proof dish.

3. Next, pour your sticky sauce mixture over the chicken; making sure that each one is coated thoroughly.

Simple and Tasty

Et voila! Sticky Glazed Chicken Drumsticks {Featuring Hellmann’s Ketchup Sweetened with Honey}.

Such a delicious and easy recipe. Now made even easier by the fact that two of the ingredients have been combined!

I served mine here with a tasty crushed new potato salad with créme fraîche, lemon and dill and a sweetcorn salsa. The drumsticks are perfect for picnics and barbecues; really yummy served either hot or cold.

I’ve also made a little (very little, less than two minutes long!) film to show just how simple they are to make.

Pop and have a look if you’ve a spare couple of minutes.
