Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp (45ml) hoisin sauce
  • 3 Tbsp (45ml) honey
  • 3 Tbsp (45ml) soy sauce
  • 4 chicken leg quarters
  • Salt and milled pepper
  • 2 packets (200g each) broccoli stems, blanched
  • 1 Tbsp (15ml) sesame oil

 

For serving:

  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Chopped cashews
  • Fresh coriander
  • Sliced radishes

 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Combine hoisin, honey and soy sauce.
  3. Toss chicken in mixture and leave to marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade and place on a baking tray.
  5. Season lightly and bake for 45-55 minutes, brushing regularly with marinade. (Once meat is cooked, marinade will become sticky and dark on the skin.)
  6. Toss broccoli in sesame oil.
  7. Serve chicken quarters on a bed of broccoli, scattered with handfuls of sesame seeds, cashews, coriander and radish slices.

 

COOK’S NOTE: Can’t find chicken leg quarters? No problem – use a combination of drumsticks and thighs, and reduce cooking time by 5-8 minutes.

Classic sourdough

This artisan-style loaf requires a bit of effort but it’s so worth it! Sourdough uses a wild yeast starter in the place of store-bought yeast, it’s a lot healthier for your gut and gives the bread a nuttier flavour and aroma.
