Roasted Chicken Drumettes

Roasted Chicken Drumettes

By using reasonable-priced chicken drumettes you will make a nice starter. Make a special treat with your usual ingredients.

Ingredients: About 4 servings

Chicken drumettes
10
Salt and pepper
to taste
☆Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
☆Sake
1 1/2 tablespoons
☆Honey
3 tablespoons

Steps

1. Season the chicken drumettes with salt and pepper.
2. Combine the ☆ ingredients together.
3. Put the chicken drumettes from Step 1 into a resealable bag or thick plastic bag.
4. Add the marinade from Step 2 into the bag.
5. Remove the excess air inside and seal the bag tightly. Rub the meat gently over the bag and leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
6. Line the oven tray with aluminum foil. Make the edges higher to stop leaking the cooking juice.
7. Place the chicken from Step 5 with the skin sides up onto the oven tray.
8. Pour the sauce over the chicken from the bag.
9. Roast the chicken in an oven pre-heated to 230℃ for about 35 minutes. If you use a gas oven, roast at 180℃.
10. While roasting, take the tray out of the oven a few times to brush the marinade over the chicken.
11. By doing this you will have shiny-looking chicken at the end. This process is quite important!
12. Look at these shiny-looking chicken drumettes.
13. Adjust the temperature and time of roasting according to your oven at home. I prefer roasting slowly with a slightly lower temperature to a higher temperature.
