Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. To prepare the ingredients, peel and crush the garlic. Juice the lime. Peel the carrots, destring the snow peas, and chop both veggies into 3 cm chunks. Rinse the Jasmine rice well.


In a medium bowl combine the salt-reduced soy sauce, honey, oyster sauce, Chinese five spice, garlic and the lime juice. Place the chicken drumsticks in the base of a large baking dish. Pour over the marinade and toss to coat the chicken in the sauce. Cook the drumsticks in the oven for 35-40 minutes, turning every 15 minutes and basting in the sauce. Once cooked, remove the baking dish from the oven and reserve 1⁄4 cup of the sweet sauce. Tip: If you have the time, marinating the chicken for at least 30 minutes will increase the flavour of this dish.


Meanwhile, place the carrot onto a lined oven tray. Drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes, or until golden and crisp.


In the last 15 minutes of cooking the chicken, place the Jasmine rice and water into a medium saucepan and bring to the boil over a high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer, uncovered, for 10-12 minutes or until soft. Add the snow peas in the last 2 minutes of cooking the rice. Drain. Return the rice and the snow peas back into the saucepan with the roasted carrot. Pour the reserved sauce into the rice. Stir to combine.


To serve divide the rice between plates and top with the honey soy drumsticks and a sprinkling of the sesame seeds. Enjoy!
