Soy Ginger Drumsticks


I realize this is probably the first chicken recipe on this blog. You see, growing up, we ate more vegetable based meals than meat. And somehow this has followed me into adulthood where most of my recipe creations gravitate towards vegetable dishes. So in an effort to challenge myself to try making more meat dishes, I present you with this quick and easy chicken dish that you will love. It doesn’t involve any elaborate procedure but is a life saver when you need a quick meal. The ginger adds a sweet spicy flavor while the soy balances it out with salty savoury goodness and the tomato paste ass a hint of sour.  Thank God for prepackaged and dressed chicken from Yo Kuku!, preparing dinner will require minimum effort.

What you will need:

1/2 Kg. Yo Kuku! Chicken drumsticks

1 Garlic clove, minced

1 Tbsp. Ginger, minced

11/2 Tbsp. Tomato paste

1 Medium onion, sliced

1 Green pepper, diced

1Tbsp. Coriander, minced

2 Tbsp. Soy sauce

Juice of half a lemon

1 Tsp. Honey


Chili oil (optional)


  1. Make sure the chicken is fully thawed.


  • In a pan, add the chicken.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, except the tomato paste, onions and green pepper. Mix well.
  • Place pan on medium heat and cover. Let the chicken cook till all the liquids are almost reduced.
  • Add the tomato paste, onions and green pepper. Stir well till the chicken is fully coated with the thick sauce.
  • Reduce fire and let the chicken slowly cook till browned and the onions are caramelized. About 20 minutes.
  • Garnish with more coriander and serve hot with your favorite carbohydrate.
