  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Cut 2 slashes in each side of the drumsticks. Place in a glass or ceramic bowl. Combine the soy sauce, honey, ginger and garlic in a jug. Pour over the chicken and turn to coat. Set aside for 20 mins to develop the flavours.
  2. Step 2

    Transfer chicken mixture to a baking tray. Bake, turning occasionally, for 30 mins or until chicken is cooked through and the sauce has reduced and is sticky.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, heat the sesame oil in a wok over high heat. Stir-fry the choy sum, pak choy and chilli for 1 min or until the greens have just wilted.
  4. Step 4

    Place the chicken on a serving plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with the stir-fried Asian greens and steamed jasmine rice.
