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.

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.
