  • 6 to 8 Chicken drumsticks
  • 175ml Loddon Brewery Ferryman’s Gold
  • 2tbsp Chopped parsley
  • 4 Cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • 2tbsp Runny honey
  • Juice of ½ a lime

  • 2tsp Sea salt flakes
  • 1tsp Chilli sauce

  • 1tsp Onion salt


  1. Mix all the ingredients really well together
  2. Rinse and pat dry the drumsticks
  3. Place in a zip lock bag and add the marinade – seal tightly
  4. Shake the bag periodically to make sure the drumsticks are fully coated
  5. Marinate for at least two hours – better overnight, if possible
  6. Light the grill or barbecue to heat up
  7. Cook the chicken for 25-30 minutes, turning every so often
  8. When the chicken is cooked, it should reach a temperature of 170F or 77C. If you are not sure poke a knife through the flesh to the bone, and when the juices run perfectly clear the meat is cooked.
