*All fresh ingredients used for this recipe are organic from Graig Organic Farms unless otherwise stated.

Ingredients:

Chicken
1 tsp Organic Honey
1 tsp Black Pepper
3 tsp Aroma All Purpose Seasoning
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 Chilli Flakes
1 tsp Garlic Granules
1 tsp Ginger Powder
Curly Parsley, chopped

SAUCE
1 Fresh Ginger
Fresh Garlic
6 tbsp Organic Honey
1/2 Lemon
1 tsp Mixed Herbs
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Black Pepper
2 tsp Corn Starch
1/2 Lemon
2 tsp Sesame Seed oil
Himalayan Salt (to taste)
Water

What you’ll need:
Sauce Pan
Knife
Chopping Board
Spatula
Oven Tray
Small/Medium Mixing Bowl
Spoon
Cup or measuring jug

Method:
Pre heat oven: Fan 200°C or Gas Mark 6
Place chicken in a large bowl and start by cleaning and removing any stray hairs and unwanted skin.
Squeeze over a fresh lemon, rub in and let it sit for 2-3 minutes then rinse off with water.
Once the chicken is clean, add all the seasonings, spices and herbs.
Rub in thoroughly and set aside for 10 minutes, then place into the oven for 50 mins.
For your sticky sauce, slice fresh garlic into long thin matchsticks and chop your garlic.
Heat up a sauce pan with sesame seed oil and add in the ginger and garlic.
Cook till it becomes aromatic and golden brown.
Next add in your honey, herbs & spices, black pepper, squeezed lemon and himalayan salt if needed. Stir and bring to a boil on a low to medium heat for 5 minutes.
In a cup, add the corn flour starch and add 2 tbs of cold water. Mix till all the corn starch dissolves and there are no lumps.
Stir as you pour corn starch mix into your honey and ginger sauce to thicken. Your sauce will start to become thick and sticky. Take it off the heat and leave to cool down, ready to brush onto your chicken.
Once chicken is ready, brush over with your sticky ginger honey sauce and serve with vegetables or brown rice.

I served mine with this delicious purple sprouting broccoli from Riverford Organic Farmers, tossed in sesame seed oil, garlic and pepper.
