This high-protein, low-calorie recipe for Honey Lemon Chicken Drumsticks is ideal for a mid-week meal because it is packed with flavour and nutrition, but simple to make with a few ingredients.

  • 1 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Third of a cup of honey
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 cup of rocket
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced
  • 1 large handful of alfalfa sprouts

Optional Extras:

  • Replace the rocket with baby spinach or other salad greens
  • Leave out the chilli and use chopped cherry tomatoes instead
  • If you don’t have a lemon on hand, use the juice of another citrus fruit, like a lime or an orange

  • Combine the oil, honey and lemon juice in a bowl, then pour into a baking tray.
  • Place chicken drumsticks in the tray ensuring that the drumsticks are coated with the honey, lemon and oil mixture.
  • Bake for 40 minutes in the oven, turning once to ensure all sides of the drumsticks are cooked.
