Sticky chicken

Mary Berry’s sticky honey chicken recipe is an old family favourite that’s quick, easy and delicious. You can also use separate thighs and drumsticks.


  • 6 chicken legs

For the marinade

  • 6 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 tbsp grainy mustard
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed


  1. Using a sharp knife, make shallow slits in the top of the chicken legs, and arrange in a shallow dish.

  2. Measure all the ingredients for the marinade together in a bowl and stir until combined. Pour over the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

  3. Preheat the oven to 220C/200 Fan/Gas 7.

  4. Line a roasting tin with baking paper, and sit the chicken legs on top, in a single layer. Spoon over the marinade and roast for 35-40 minutes, or until sticky, golden-brown and cooked through. Serve hot.
