Step by Step Method
In a plastic bag, mix together the Italian dressing, garlic, oregano, onion salt and the red pepper flakes.
Add chicken pieces and let sit in refrigerator for at least four hours.
In the meantime, drop the tomatoes in a pot of boiling water and let sit until skin loosens. Remove skin and allow cooling.
Chop tomato and add to vodka sauce along with the chives and set aside.
When chicken has marinated, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place marinated chicken pieces in an oven-proof baking dish and cover with sauce.
Bake for 1 hour, until chicken is cooked through.
Remove chicken pieces from sauce and place on a pie plate, skin side up, and return to oven uncovered.
Bake for another 15 to 20 minutes or until skin has crisped a bit.
