  4. Refrigerate anywhere from 4-24 hours (mine was in the fridge for about 22).
  5. Giving the bag a couple of turns during the day to redistribute the marinade.
  6. Preheat oven to 425F.
  7. Place chicken, skin-side-up in a large, shallow roasting pan and roast 1 hour or until chicken is golden-brown.
