Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C, fan 180C, gas mark 6.

  2. Tip the drumsticks into a bowl then add the oil. Scatter over the ground cumin, coriander, smoked paprika and mix together until totally coated in the spice mixture.

  3. Place on a rack set over a tray in the oven to roast for 40 minutes until golden and cooked through.

  4. To check that the chicken is cooked, insert a knife or skewer into the fattest part of the thigh. If the juices run clear, the chicken is cooked through. If any blood comes out, return it to the oven for another 5–10 minutes, then check again.

  5. Heat a frying pan until hot, add the chilli and teriyaki sauces and heat until bubbling. Add the lime zest and juice and cooked chicken drumsticks. Toss around until sticky and cooked through.

  6. Serve on a platter with the coriander scattered over the top.
