  • For Marination
  • You can use skinned /skinless chicken pieces. I have taken 5 skinless chicken drumsticks.
  • Wash it thoroughly & pat dry each piece using a paper towel
  • For chicken pieces to be marinated properly I am gashing the pieces with a knife. Gashing is optional if you are using small pieces.
  • Now let us prepare the sauce for marination. Let us take a bowl & add in lemon juice of 1/2lemon, 2tbsp crushed ginger, 11/2tbsp crushed garlic, 1/2tsp pepper powder, 1tbsp chilli sauce & 5tbsp soy sauce.
  • Mix the mixture thoroughly.
  • I am not adding extra salt because of salt content in soy sauce. If you need salt you can add at this time.
  • Now add the drumsticks into the marinade & marinate it well.
  • Close the bowl & marinate either for 1hr or to overnight.
  • Frying the chicken pieces
  • Now heat a pan & add 1 or 2tbsp oil
  • Keep the flame low or medium & add drumsticks one by one & fry the pieces.
  • Stir often to prevent the marinade from burning, until golden brown.
  • Transfer the drumsticks from pan.
  • Preparing the Honey Glazed Marinade
  • Now in the same pan pour the remaining marinade & add in 3tbsp honey to it.
  • Bring to boil & stir until the marinade is thick like sauce consistency.
  • Add the fried drumsticks one by one into the marinade.
  • Make sure each drumstick is evenly coated with honey marinade & cooked thoroughly.
  • Cook the chicken pieces in the honey marinade for 10 to 15 min over low flame. Stir often.
  • Our sweet & spicy drumstick is ready to be served.
