Step By Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas mark 5.
  2. Squeeze the juice from 2 of the lemons and pour into a small saucepan. Add the butter, honey, garlic and rosemary. Place over a low heat for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally; set aside.
  3. Arrange the chicken drumsticks in a large roasting tray. Scatter the potatoes around the chicken and pour over the hot lemon sauce. Cut the remaining lemon into 4 and place in the tray. Stir to ensure that the sauce is coating all the chicken and potatoes and everything is evenly spaced. Season with salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 1¼ hours, stirring halfway through.
  4. Remove from the oven and serve with a big mixed salad.

GINO’S TIP: The lemon and honey make a great sauce for roasting, but you could also use it as a marinade for barbecuing chicken in summer.

If you decide to prepare a fishy starter and want to follow it with a meat dish, the problem that you will find is that during the main course you will still be able to taste the fish.

This is the real thing. The genuine ragù, as it is made in Bologna, is a mouthwatering meat sauce that includes different types of mince, including pork and beef, slowly cooked in a tomato and vegetable sauce. In Italy, this sauce is only ever served with broad, flat pasta such as tagliatelle or fettuccine and never with spaghetti.
