  • 6 Pcs Chicken drumstick with top drumstick
  • 1 Pcs Orange - juice from it
  • 3 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tbsp Good olive oil
  • 1 pinch Fresh black pepper
  • 1 branch Fresh thyme


  • Pluck the thyme leaves from a few twigs. Preheat the oven to 200 ° convection.
  • Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl: honey, soy sauce, orange juice, thyme, olive oil and freshly grated pepper.
  • Brush the back of the chicken legs. Then turn over and lay neatly and brush the surface (skin side).
  • Done! Now bake the chicken pieces at 200 ° C for 50 minutes. The marinade will darken the chickens slightly, and the honey will help the crust caramelize slightly. Serve with a little salad and drizzle with the excess juice.
