Recipe: Worcestershire Honey-glazed Chicken

Garden Volunteer, Nick, shares one of his favourite recipes that’s guaranteed to please no matter what the weather. Quick and easy to prepare, the chicken makes for a lovely light and summery dish when served with salad and boiled potatoes, and is equally delicious as a winter warmer with steamed vegetables and roast potatoes, or rice.

Ingredients for two people

  • 4 chicken thighs (with their skins)
  • 4 tbsp clear honey
  • 4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed

Method

  1. Set the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, except for the chicken. Add a tablespoon of water and mix it all together.
  3. Place the chicken in the mixture and make sure it is completely coated in the sauce.
  4. Marinate in the fridge. For best results, I recommend marinating overnight. If you’re in a rush, you can forget about marinating altogether and it will be fine.
  5. Place in an ovenproof dish and bake (covered) for an hour. Take the lid off for the last 15 minutes.
  6. Before serving, thicken the sauce by adding a little cornflour mixed with water and bringing it to the boil while stirring.
