The preparation

The ONLY thing to prepare is to put an egg yolk in a cup, add some liquid creme and mix it with a fork, see photo below please. You need as well to cut the ham in small pieces as well as the cheese (Chaumes).

  • Pepper
  • Soy sauce
  • Oyster sauce
  • Honey
  • Garlic minced (1 coffee spoon)
  • Ginger minced (1 coffee spoon)
  • Olive oil
  • Thyme
  • Chilly powder
  • Piment d’espelette

Mix now everything with a whisk, taste the marinade and adjust it to YOUR taste… .

OK, the marinade finished now, WE can bring in the chicken wings and chicken drumsticks and later put the shallow dish with the whole into the fridge where WE leave it for +/- 20 hours. You can also ONLY let it 2 hours in the fridge, but as longer as better…

The Ingredients For Marinade With Honey AND Dijon Mustard

To prepare the marinade is very easy, it will be done in 10 minutes ONLY! Take a shallow dish and bring in the following ingredients, actually THE same as above PLUS the “Dijon Mustard”:

  • Pepper
  • Soy sauce
  • Oyster sauce
  • Honey
  • Garlic minced (1 coffee spoon)
  • Ginger minced (1 coffee spoon)
  • Olive oil
  • Thyme
  • Chilly powder
  • Piment d’espelette
  • Dijon Mustard

Mix now everything with a whisk, taste the marinade and adjust it to YOUR taste… .

OK, the marinade finished now, WE can bring in the chicken wings and chicken drumsticks and later put the shallow dish with the whole into the fridge where WE leave it for +/- 20 hours. You can also ONLY let it 2 hours in the fridge, but as longer as better…

I didn’t YET try out this marinade for meat, but will do as soon as the BBQ-Season is open! It tastes very delicious 😉


THE Cooking

YOU can use this on the “BBQ” and/or by cooking them in the oven. Actually (February) I cooked them in the oven. Preheat the oven on 180°C (356°F). It will take +/- 12 minutes, so stay close to the oven to observe when the upper side is nearly brown (+/- 5-6 minutes) and turn the pieces, so that both sides get well brown.

Bon appétit

Text from Wikipedia: Sempervivum /sɛmpəˈvvəm/,[1] is a genus of about 40 species of flowering plants in the Crassulaceae family, known as houseleeks. Other common names include liveforever and hen and chicks. They are succulent perennials forming mats composed of tufted leaves in rosettes. In favourable conditions they spread rapidly via offsets, and several species are valued in cultivation as groundcover for dry, sunny spots.[2]
