Tell the kids you are making bird in a basket for tea and they are sure to be intrigued enough to help out. The chicken carries a dynamic flavour thanks to a marinade of honey, soy and ketchup.

Method
1.
Combine the garlic, tomato ketchup, soy sauce, honey and ground ginger to make a paste
2.
Using your hands, coat the chicken drumsticks in the marinade. Leave to marinate for an hour
Room for a little one
This step could get messy, but is easy enough for the kids to do. Ensure they have clean hands before they roll their sleeves up and get stuck into coating the chicken
3.
Meanwhile, for the coleslaw, finely shred the cabbage and finely slice the spring onions, keeping the white and green parts separate
Tasty trivia
Cabbage is in the same family as cauliflower and broccoli, and though it doesn’t appeal to many kids, it’s very healthy – it’s packed with nutrients including vitamin C!
4.
Combine the sweet chilli sauce, lime juice, seasoning and mayonnaise in a large bowl and stir to combine. Mix through the cabbage, grated carrot and spring onion whites until coated in the dressing
5.
Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6
6.
Place the chicken drumsticks on a roasting tray lined with parchment paper and cook for 40-45 minutes, turning halfway through. Once cooked, the chicken will be crisp and golden brown
7.
Make a small nest of coleslaw in the centre of each plate, arrange the chicken drumsticks on top. Sprinkle with the spring onion greens and serve immediately
