  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180C and bring a saucepan of water to the boil. During this time, finely chop the garlic and cube the sweet potatoes.

  • Step 2

    Boil the sweet potatoes in the saucepan. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, combine the honey, garlic, thyme, and wholegrain mustard to create a glaze.

  • Step 3

    Lightly brush some of the honey glaze onto the chicken. Season the chicken with oil, salt, and pepper.

  • Step 4

    In a pan, heat half of the oil and sear the chicken until the skin is browning on both sides.

  • Step 5

    Remove the sweet potatoes from the water, season them with salt and pepper, and place them on a baking tray.

  • Step 6

    Transfer the seared chicken to the same baking tray, brush more honey glaze on it, and place the tray in the preheated oven.

  • Step 7

    After around 10 minutes, remove the tray from the oven to turn the chicken and brush it with additional glaze. Add asparagus to the tray and return it to the oven.

  • Step 8

    Once the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the vegetables are tender, remove the tray from the oven. Serve the roasted vegetables with the sticky chicken legs. Enjoy!
