Preparation Method

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Mix 80ml of Worcestershire sauce, 4 tablespoons of tomato ketchup, 2 teaspoons of English mustard powder (or to taste), 1 teaspoon of ground ginger, 1 tablespoon of apricot jam and 1 peeled and finely chopped onion in a shallow dish. Dunk 8 chicken drumsticks in this marinade to coat them all over. Put a tablespoon of garlic oil into a smallish roasting tin or ovenproof dish, in which the drumsticks will fit snugly, and tip the tin about so that the oil more or less covers the base. Arrange the drumsticks in the tin and pour over them any remaining marinade. Cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour, basting once or twice. The deeper the dish, the longer the drumsticks will take to colour and cook through.

The chicken can be marinated overnight in a covered bowl in the fridge.
