GINGER & APRICOT CHICKEN

SUITABLE FROM 9 MONTHS & ADULTS

MAKES 6 x Drumsticks/ PREPARE 10 mins / COOK 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS
6 Organic Chicken Drumsticks
1 tbsp Sesame seeds

For the Marinade:
6 tbsp Light low salt soy sauce
4 tbsp Sesame oil
3 Garlic cloves
2 tbsp Ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
3 Soft dried apricots
2 Limes, juice
2 tbsp Cold water

INSTRUCTIONS

Blend all of the ingredients for the marinade in your Béaba Babycook® until you get a smooth consistency.

You can set aside some of the marinade for later to heat, and serve with the cooked chicken.

Put the chicken drumsticks in a large freezer bag and then pour the marinade in. Give the contents a good squeeze and put the bag in the fridge for a couple of hours (you can leave it overnight if you are preparing dinner ahead), giving it a bit of a shake every now and then to ensure the chicken is marinating evenly.

Once ready to cook the chicken, pre-heat the oven to 190C (175C fan oven), fire up the BBQ or pop in the air fryer!

For Oven:
Pour the contents of the bag into a roasting tin, sprinkle the sesame seeds over the chicken and bake in the oven for approx. 30 minutes, turning once or twice so the drumsticks brown evenly.

For BBQ:
If cooking on the BBQ, remove the drumsticks from the bag and shake off the excess marinade and cook until a sharp knife stuck in the thickest part of the drumstick yields clear juices – 20 minutes approximately turning every now and again.

For Air Fryer:
If cooking in the air fryer, remove the drumsticks from the bag and shake off the excess marinade and cook until a sharp knife stuck in the thickest part of the drumstick yields clear juices – 20 minutes approximately turning half way through.

If you have set aside some of the marinade at the start, pour this into a saucepan, cook it down for 10 minutes and serve alongside the chicken.

Always check that chicken is cooked through before eating.

For children from 9 months, cut the chicken off the drumstick ensuring it does not contain any bones.
Serve with seasonal veg, a salad or rice.
