• Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Finely chop garlic. • Add chicken drumsticks to a lined baking dish. Add garlic, mild Caribbean jerk seasoning, honey, salt and a drizzle of white wine vinegar and olive oil. Toss to coat, then arrange in a single layer. Bake chicken for 20 minutes. • Turn chicken and spoon over any juices in baking dish. Continue baking until golden brown and cooked through, 20-25 minutes.

TIP: The spice blend will char slightly, this adds flavour to the dish!


• While chicken is baking, cut potato into fries. • Place fries on a lined oven tray. Season with salt and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat, then bake until tender, 25-30 minutes.


• Drain sweetcorn. • Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Cook sweetcorn until lightly charred, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. • Meanwhile, thinly slice spring onion. Roughly chop baby spinach leaves. • Add spring onion, baby spinach and a drizzle of white wine vinegar and olive oil to charred corn. Season.

TIP: Cover the pan with a lid if the corn kernels are "popping" out.


• Divide Caribbean chicken drumsticks and fries between plates. • Spoon over any remaining glaze from baking dish. • Serve with charred corn salsa and sour cream.
