Step by Step Method

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.

Step 4

Line a shallow sided tray with baking paper and place the chicken pieces on the tray in a single layer.

Step 5

Spoon any remaining marinade over the chicken pieces.

Step 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).

Step 7

Serve with rice and steamed vegetables.
