Sticky chicken

Mary Berry's sticky honey chicken recipe is an old family favourite that's quick, easy and delicious. You can also use separate thighs and drumsticks.


For the marinade


  1. Using a sharp knife, make shallow slits in the top of the chicken legs, and arrange in a shallow dish.

  2. Measure all the ingredients for the marinade together in a bowl and stir until combined. Pour over the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

  3. Preheat the oven to 220C/200 Fan/Gas 7.

  4. Line a roasting tin with baking paper, and sit the chicken legs on top, in a single layer. Spoon over the marinade and roast for 35-40 minutes, or until sticky, golden-brown and cooked through. Serve hot.
