Feast your eyes on the finest lemon chicken with honey & rosemary! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

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.

Spaghetti ai Carciofi, Radicchio, Piselli e Vino BiancoSpaghetti with Artichokes, Radicchio, Peas and White Wine

Perfect for a midweek supper, this dish is quick and easy to make and low-fat too. Radicchio is very popular in Italy, particularly in the north, where it grows mainly in the Veneto region. Prized for the rich red colour and slightly bitter flavour of its leaves, radicchio is also a rich source of vitamin K.

I don’t about know you, but I sometimes get bored of always having potatoes with my main meal.

Try this recipe with pumpkin when it is in season and you can use Parmesan cheese instead of Pecorino.
