LJ Mango sriracha chicken

The spice of this delicious Asian inspired dish is paired perfectly with our sweet Lady Jane Mango.

Drumstick ingredients:

  • 6-8 Chicken Drumsticks
  • Light olive oil for cooking

Chicken Marinade:

  • 5 garlic cloves
  • Approx 4cm knob of ginger
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • Salt to taste

Mango Glaze:

  • 1 Lady Jane mango peeled, seed removed and pureed
  • 2 Tbsp sriracha
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • Salt to taste


  1. Combine marinade ingredients in a food processor or with a mortar and pestle.
  2. Coat the chicken with the marinade in a non-reactive bowl.
  3. Refrigerate overnight or for at least two hours (the longer the chicken marinates the better the flavour).
  4. In a small bowl combine all mango glaze ingredients and set aside.
  5. Pre-heat oven to bake at 200⁰C.
  6. Heat oil in a heavy based pan. Brown the chicken drumstick pieces then place into a baking dish.
  7. Roast the chicken for 35-40 minutes until golden turning over every 10-15 minutes for even cooking.
  8. Brush glaze over evenly and roast for another 10-15 minutes until the glaze has browned and slightly crusted over and juices are clear.
  9. Serve with coriander leaves and sliced spring onions scattered over. Suitable side dishes are jasmine or basmati rice and steamed green beans.
