That’s it! The Christmas holidays are over and it’s back to life, back to reality (sing it Soul II Soul). And reality consists of many harried week days – thanks to school runs, work deadlines and of course, catering to the whims of a feisty toddler. So it’s no surprise that my preference for week night dinners are easy-to-rustle-up meals, like baked chicken drumsticks.

Introducing my version of a sweet and sticky baked chicken legs which is to-die for! This recipe delivers chicken drumsticks and thighs that have been marinated in incredible African flavours and baked to golden perfection – the result: moist, succulent and flavoursome chicken legs that I can only describe as heaven on a plate!
With only 5 easy-to-find ingredients, this recipe could not be simpler or tastier…believe me.
