Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 225°C.
  2. Cut chicken into 8 pieces (2 drumsticks, 2 thighes and 2 half breasts [cut the breasts in half again to give you your 8 pieces - one portion will have wings, remove if you don't want them there] or buy a precut chicken.
  3. Mix together in a large bowl all ingredients except the chicken pieces and mix well to combine and then put the chicken pieces in and coat them well in the marinade.
  4. Line a shallow sided tray with baking paper and place the chicken pieces on the tray in a single layer.
  5. Spoon any remaining marinade over the chicken pieces.
  6. Place in pre-heated oven and bake until well browned and juices run clear (estimate 35 to 45 minutes, depending on size of chicken pieces).
  7. Serve with rice and steamed vegetables.

this is a yummy easy weeknight meal. i have made it a few times now, both with skin and bone in thighs and skinless boneless thighs. i put this in my convection oven to enhance the caramelization. dh was very enthusiastic about this dish as well.

This cooked up lovely in the webber. I used a scotch bonnet chili and marinated the chicken for a good four hours. I had asked for drumsticks but Dave came home with skinless chicken breasts. It didn't matter at all, I just diced them into bite size pieces and didn't cook for as long. Served with a varity of salads.

This made a fast and easy supper. I marinated the chicken in the sauce for a few hours b/f baking for 35 minutes. I used 4 chicken breasts to serve two. The sauce is a really nice BBQ style that would be wonderful for grilling also. :-) Made for HolidayTag.
