  • 1½ tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon crushed chilli paste
  • 2 teaspoons reduced salt soy sauce
  • 750 g orange sweet potatoes, cut into 2 cm-thick wedges
  • 2 red onions, cut into wedges
  • 8 chicken lovely legs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 250 g green beans, trimmed


Step 1

Combine honey, chilli, soy sauce and 1 tablespoon hot water in a small jug. Set aside.

Step 2

Place sweet potato, onion and chicken in a large roasting pan. Drizzle with oil. Toss to coat and spread into an even layer. Bake in 190 °C preheated oven for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Remove pan from oven. Turn chicken and vegetables, then pour over honey mixture and gently toss to coat. Return pan to oven. Bake for a further 15-20 minutes or until sweet potato wedges are tender and chicken is cooked through.

Step 4

Meanwhile, steam or microwave beans until just tender. Drain.

Step 5

Add beans to roasting pan to serve.


  • Chicken lovely legs are drumsticks with skin and lower part of the bone removed. They’re available from major supermarkets and chicken shops. If preferred, you can substitute 850 g skinless chicken thigh fillets (fat trimmed)
  • If you’re not a fan of chilli, replace chilli paste with wholegrain mustard.
