Preparation Time20 mins
Cook Time30 mins


1.5kg chicken drumettes
1 ½ tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
600ml buttermilk
1 cup plain flour
1 cup rice flour
grapeseed oil, for drizzling

Rosemary Honey Butter
125g unsalted butter
2 tbs honey
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 sprig rosemary, leaves picked & finely chopped
½ tsp sea salt


Place chicken in a large bowl and toss with salt and garlic. Add the buttermilk and mix to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 200°C Fan Assist.

In a bowl, whisk together the plain and rice flour until combined. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Lift a piece of chicken out of the buttermilk, allowing excess to drip off, then toss in the flour to coat, shaking off excess. Transfer to baking tray and repeat with remaining chicken.

Drizzle the chicken with grapeseed oil and bake for 30 minutes, turning after 20 minutes, until golden and crisp.

Meanwhile, for rosemary honey butter, place all the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat until melted and combined.

Serve chicken drizzled with rosemary honey butter.
