I scaled back for 1 serve and used what we call a Maryland cut of chicken (where thigh and drumstick are kept intact) and followed through with the recipe first browning in a frypan and then into poured marinade on making sure all the chicken was coated and baked in a 175C oven for 50 minutes and the end result was super moist and flavoursome chicken, thank you Netgirl made for Alphabet Soup tag game.

Great chicken, not only easy to make but wonderfully flavorful, tender and delicious! I marinated for four hours, baked uncovered at 425 for 25 minutes then covered with foil, for my oven turned down to 350 til done. Served with Basmati rice. Can't wait to serve this to family and friends.
