Bake the chicken on a broiler pan only, this makes for a better texture and tasting chicken with more flavor and the fat drips to the bottom. Prep time includes 8 hours marinating time.

I ended up using some bottled sauce but I followed all of the directions and it turned out great! At the end I switched the oven to broil for about 5 min or so to crisp up the skin. Great method!
