Selma’s Sticky Spicy Chicken
An early Fiesta Friday
I had decided last Friday to cook one of Selma’s dishes in tribute not only to her memory but to her fantastic cooking. I had intended to post it this Friday for Fiesta Friday. However, Angie from Fiesta Friday in collaboration with Elaine Foodbod have put together a wonderful community post for other bloggers to post something related to Selma as a tribute and to have a portal to visit as well as her blog and see how the Community pull together and wish to remember her.
This special event is being hosted by a few people, namely: FiestaFriday.net, as well as foodbod, The Not So Creative Cook, and birgerbird. There will be a link prompt on all 4 blogs if you want to pop by.
Most of all, here is the link to Selma’s blog where you can see all her wonderful recipes and get to know a bit more about her: Selma’s Table
Now I was having a hunt around her blog trying to find a chicken recipe that would have all ingredients that I currently stocked, one that tickled my taste bud and that was possible with the fact I could not get out to buy more ingredients.
So I found this one here: Selma’s Sticky Spicy Chicken
I pretty much had everything except enough peanuts. You can see my miserable donation, literally not even a handful, but we were rescued last minute as the food was piled on the plate by some salted, not roasted peanuts, it all worked well.
So here we have some visual evidence….
It was a really easy meal to cook and the family loved it. I teamed it up with some sweetcorn, oh boy those things are hard to cut up. Also some rice that was boiled in the remaining vegetable water and chicken stock and a dab of butter (hence why it is yellow)
Oh I forgot I also teamed it up with green beans, buttered with sea salt, yum.
I lit a candle for Selma and toasted her with a glass of red….
Here are the ingredients you need…..
Sticky Spicy Chicken
- 4 of each, free range chicken legs and thighs; skin on, bone in
- Juice of one lemon
- Olive oil
For the glaze:
- 3 Tbsp honey
- 2 Tbsp soy or teriyaki sauce
- 1 Tbsp grated ginger
- 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
- ½ tsp chilli flakes – adjust this amount to your palate
- 2 Tbsp crushed or chopped peanuts (I used pre-roasted and salted ones which I pounded roughly in the mortar and pestle)
- 3 spring onions finely sliced

I have to say this is an easy and really, really super tasty meal, thank you Selma….
