Sticky chicken drumsticks w/ roasted herby baby new potatoes

8 chicken drumsticks
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp tomato purée
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
Baby new potatoes
Dried of fresh herbs

Make 3 slashes on each of the drumsticks. Mix together the soy, honey, oil, tomato purée and mustard. Pour this mixture over the chicken and coat thoroughly. Leave to marinate for 30 mins at room temperature or overnight in the fridge.

Heat oven to 200C/gas 6. Put as many new potatoes as you like into a shallow roasting tray and lightly drizzle with olive oil, a good sprinkling of any dried or fresh herbs you like and sea salt (I used thyme or rosemary). Put them on to the top shelf of the oven and roast for around 45 mins, until they are soft on the inside with a crusty shell. Put the chicken into a shallow roasting tray and cook for 35 mins (10 mins after the pots have gone in), turning occasionally, until the chicken is tender and glistening with the marinade. You might have to tweak the cooking times a little depending on how quick or slow your oven is. You can also BBQ the chicken if you fancy a cheeky mid-week grilling session! :). Serve with straight away coleslaw or salad.
