Roast Chicken Legs with a Dash of Honey

I don’t know about you but I always end up making the same sauce.  But not this time I was determined to make some changes.  One thing, the longer you leave the chicken to marinate the better tasting dish it will be at the end.

Suitable for: Gluten free, Dairy free, Egg free

Prep: 15 min, Cooking Time : 60 mins

10 chicken legs
2 to 3 teaspoons salt or to taste
2 teaspoons coriander powder
2 teaspoons cumin powder
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons chilli flakes

300ml Malt Vinegar
50ml Honey
100g salted Butter


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a big bowl 
  2. Add vinegar and honey to this mixture

  4. Lay the chicken onto a deep oven tray.
  5. Before placing in the oven, cut butter into small cubes and spread on the chicken and cover with Aluminium foil.
