  • 8 - 10 Thighs will also work with this dish! Chicken Drumsticks
  • 1 Orange
  • 1 Lemon
  • 3 Full Tablespoons Honey
  • As Needed Salt
  • As Needed Ground Black Pepper


  • Clean the chicken from any unwanted feathers, fat or bones (you may remove the skin – I like to keep it on!) and then nicely organize them in a tray with high edges.
  • Using a knife – make cuts across the chicken (not to the bone).
  • Grate the lemon and orange peel on a fine grater.
  • Squeeze the orange and lemon in a bowl.
  • Add to the bowl – the honey, half the lemon and orange zest, salt and pepper.
  • Stir with a whisk until everything is dissolved and united.
  • Pour the mixture into the tray.
  • We recommend you keeping it in the refrigerator for a few hours - it helps the flavors penetrate the chicken nicely. You can also simply continue cooking - in that case - massage the chicken with the marinade (using your hands of course!) making sure that everything is nicely coated.
  • Sprinkle half of what’s left of the zest grating (the rest can be used for something else)
  • Place in the oven to 350F for 1 hour – making sure that every 15 minutes you turn the chicken from all directions.
  • In the last 5 minutes in the oven – move the tray to the upper grill in order for the chicken to brown nicely and receive a great crispiness.
  • It’s ready!
  • Serve with white rice or rice with vegetables.
