Sticky Sesame Drumsticks

Everybody loves a dark brown, sticky drumstick speckled with nutty sesame seeds. The trick is to pre-cook the chicken in the microwave, before finishing it off on the braai.


  • 12 chicken drumsticks
  • ± 1 cup (250 ml) Ina Paarman’s Sticky Marinade
  • 1 zip-lock plastic bag
  • Ina Paarman's Braai & Grill Seasoning
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) sesame seeds

Make 2 deep slashes right down to the bone on the best side of each drumstick.

Place the chicken inside a zip-lock plastic bag, add ½ cup (125 ml) Sticky Marinade.

Squeeze the air out of the bag and seal. Massage the sauce into the chicken. Leave at room temperature for 2 hours or overnight in the fridge. Remove chicken from the bag, discard the bag and used Marinade, and place chicken into a micro proof dish, best side up. Season lightly with Braai & Grill Seasoning.


Microwave open on 60% powder for 12 minutes. Can be done in advance.

Braai, over a medium fire, until beginning to brown. Baste with remaining fresh Marinade. Turn and baste regularly until nicely browned all round. Sprinkle sesame seeds over before final baste.

Delicious with Couscous Salad.
