Step 1

Preheat oven to 225°C.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Spoon any remaining marinade over the chicken pieces.

Step 6
