    A lovely light and easy recipe, we had it with Jersey Royals and salad.Marinade would be good on BBQ food.Will definitely make it again.

  • Luke

    Tasty marinade, goes well with sweet potato fries and coleslaw. I found cooking the thighs for longer helped built the sticky coating

  • Katie

    Tasty and so easy marinaded overnight while defrosting in fridge.

  • Jules

    Sticky?? Certainly not when I made it! Prepared and cooked as per instructions and what was produced was a bland piece of chicken with not an ounce of 'sticky' to it! Wasted money buying M&S Brewers Paste to go in this and I doubt it will be used again. Perhaps,as another reviewer has put,it requires an overnight marinade to actually permeate the chicken,but it is not something that I would either recommend or make again.

  • Keith and Philly

    Easy to prep (2 novices here), tasty, delicious and all eaten! Not very 'sticky' so will try and thicken the marinade up (somehow!) and cook for a bit longer next time.

  • Thimble Queen

    Having read other reviews I left the chicken in the marinade for4 hours. Too much marinade. Basted the chicken 4 or 5 times to get nicely coated and sticky. Marinade left over. Very tasty.

  • Sarah

    Lovely and very easy to do. The whole family love them and are always asking for them 😍

  • Mike

    To thicken and make marinade more sticky use half to marinade chicken and put the other half in a pan and reduce it over simmering heat. Perhaps a touch more honey :-). Use that to glaze chicken. On the BBQ this recipe is even better

  • Pauline strawson .

    Had this for tea tonight and it was lovely ,did marinate all day .we will definitely have it again ,I made a winter salad and baby potatoes which we had with it .

  • N

    Very tasty but way to much marinade, took advice off previous review and thickened excess marinade in pan , poured over the top of chicken and made a huge difference

  • Georgia

    Came out a lot runnier than ‘sticky’. Very tasty but looked nothing like the picture!
