• 250ml red wine
  • 2 oranges, 1 zested and juiced, 1 sliced
  • ½ tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves, roughly chopped
  • 8 chicken drumsticks, skin on
  • 700g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 4cm chunks
  • 1 large fennel bulb, cut into thick slices
  • 1 red pepper, finely sliced


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas mark 6. Mix together the wine, orange juice and zest, sugar, oil and thyme. Place the chicken, sweet potatoes, fennel, pepper and orange slices on a 40 x 30cm baking tray or two smaller trays to allow the sauce to thicken and the chicken and potatoes to brown nicely. Pour over the wine mixture and season. 

  2. 2

    Place in the oven for 55 minutes to an hour, turning halfway through and making sure the wine marinade has become sticky and turned into a glaze. Remove the orange slices if they begin to brown too quickly. Serve immediately.
