Serves: 2          Time: 50 minutes          Level: Easy


  1. 2 large, free-range chicken drumsticks
  2. 4 cloves of garlic
  3. A mixture of organic seasonal root vegetables cut into chunks (around 500g)
  4. 200ml Kombucha
  5. A lemon
  6. Olive oil


Pre-heat the oven to 200°C

Drizzle a glug of olive oil on an oven tray and place the chicken on top, skin down. Roast for about 10 minutes.

Take the tray out, turn over the chicken and add the garlic and vegetables.

Drizzle the kombucha over everything, squeeze the juice of the lemon and then leave it on the tray.

Roast for another 30-40 minutes, checking regularly to spoon the liquid over the chicken and vegetables.
