Rosemary Honey Chicken Drumlets

There are many ways you can enjoy honey either on it's own, mix it with water or juice, drizzle on fruits and pancakes or use it for baking cake or savoury food. No matter which method you prefer, a daily dose of honey in whichever way is good to boost the body's supply of antioxidants which is therefore essential for protecting against free radicals.

In my last related honey post, I have shared a "Honey Lemonade" recipe which is good for flushing out your body system and gives it a boost to increase your daily energy. And in this post, I will be sharing another finger licking recipe using honey to enhance it taste and colours.


If drumlets is not your preference you can always replace it with mid-joints or even chicken maryland for a hearty serving portion together with some mashed potato or garden salad to complete the meal.

(Serves: 2-3 |      Preparation: 5 minutes |         Cooking: 30 - 40 minutes)

10 - 12 Chicken Drumlets
1 Tablespoon Honey Sheep Lemon West Coast Honey
1/2 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce
1/2 Tablespoon Cooking Wine
1/2 Teaspoon Dark Soy Sauce
1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
2 Sprigs Rosemary, remove leaves and roughly chopped

1. Trim the bone end of each chicken drumlets, remove skin around the bone and push the down the flesh to the head of the drumlet to form a cluster.

2. Marinate the drumlets with honey, oyster sauce, dark soy sauce, cooking wine, pepper and rosemary leaves. Set aside in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

3. Line baking tray with baking paper or aluminum foil, arrange marinated chicken drumlets(remove from the fridge 10 - 15 minuets before cooking)on it and bake in oven toaster for about 30 minutes(flipping the drumlets two to three time during cooking to even the brown colours)

~ Bake in a preheated 200° Celsius(400 degrees Fahrenheit) oven for about 30 - 40 minutes or till cooked through.

4. Next brush chicken drumlets with some extra honey lemon during the last 5 minutes of cooking time to enhance the colour and flavour of the drumlets.

5. When done, remove from oven and serve immediately.

Personally I love this hassle free recipe which consists of light fruity flavors of lemon with fresh herbs and honey which makes it an refreshing starter for parties or even main dish. And in conjunction with the Food Revolution Day mentioned below, I would like to encourage more readers or food lovers to choose and eat your food wisely. Nothing beats homecook food which use fresh ingredients, I am sure with some simple recipe(s) such as this Rosemary Honey Chicken Drumblets above, you are able to feed your loved ones with fresh and healthier meals anytime of the day.


Recently there is a wave about this "Food Revolution Day" which is going to take place on 19th May 2012 in different parts of the world. Initially this project is bought up by Jaime Olive to bring awareness across food consumers on proper diet habits using fresh ingredients rather than processed food which are high in sugar, unnatural preservatives and unknown chemicals. And here in Singapore we also have a group of food lovers who gets together to support this event, and this would be held on 19th May 2012 at The Lawn.

So all food lovers in Singapore, come and join with us on Food Revolution Day where all food lovers gather for a dinner party, share and learn about their knowledge about food! To find out more, you can hope over to Facebook or Twitter now to get the latest updates! Cya there!

Honey Lemonade From Happy Sheep Honey

Most of us understand that Honey contains antioxidants(essential for protecting against free radicals) which can be helpful to boosting immunity and as well it has been used since ancient times to treat certain allergies. For your information, honey contains traces of Vitamins B and C as well as minerals such as Calcium, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium and etc. It is also a source of natural unrefined sugars and carbohydrates, which are easily absorbed by the body and therefore provide an instant energy boost with long-lasting effects.

Recently I received these two products from Happy Sheep Honey to try out and my family and I really love it's taste and flavour compared to the usual one that we always purchased. According to their website, Happy Sheep Honey is from the remote native forests of the West Coast region in the South Island of New Zealand. And their unpasteurised honey this minimally processed to preserve the inherent natural flavours and live enzymes makes it popular to be consume within health food circles.

Happy Sheep Honey includes a selection of four unpasteurised honeys such as:- West Coast Honey, Active Manuka 12+ Honey, Lemon And West Coast Honey and Strawberry West Coast Honey. You can easily purchase these honey at local supermarkets such as NTUC Fairprice or Cold Storage; prices range between S$10.35 - S$39.90 depending on the product.


As recommended, a daily dose of honey whether to be served as sweetener in hot/cold beverages, or spread on toast or cake will help to boost the body's supply of antioxidants. So let's start the day by having a cup of this Honey Lemonade before breakfast to flush out our system and give it a boost with this cleansing brew. And instead of quenching thirst with a soda on a hot day, perhaps you can turn this into an Icy Lemonade for a healthier beverage and support "Food Revolution Day in Singapore" which begins in 19 May 2012.(read more HERE)

(Serves: 2            |        Preparation: 5 minutes )

500ml Lukewarm Drinking Water
2 - 3 Tablespoons Lemon West Coast Honey
A Few Slices of Lemon, optional
