Black Garlic Chicken

There is so much umami here it will go with just about anything.


  • Olive Oil  ·  4 tablespoons 
  • Soy Sauce  ·  4 tablespoons 
  • Herbie's Black Garlic Powder  ·  2 teaspoons 
  • Honey  ·  2 tablespoons 
  • Herbie’s Urfa Biber  ·  1 teaspoon 
  • Herbie’s Porcini Powder  ·  1 teaspoon 
  • Herbie’s Hungarian Paprika  ·  1/2 teaspoon 
  • Chicken drumsticks or thighs (skin on)  ·  12 
  • micro-herbs, to serve (optional)  ·   


The heavenly sweet sticky black garlic makes the perfect base for a marinade or dressing. Replace the oil with butter and chill to make a wonderful spiced butter for roasted and grilled meats and vegetables, particularly large roast mushrooms.

Pre-heat oven to 180C.

Combine Black Garlic Powder with the next 7 listed ingredients. Either shake together in a jar, or for a smoother paste, blitz in the small bowl of a food processor.

Take the marinade and rub all over chicken, gently lifting the skin and pushing some under there too.

Place chicken pieces on a lined baking tray and roast for 30 minutes until cooked through.

Serve immediately, or allow to cool before refrigerating (great for picnics!)
