Tasty, juicy and easy! I love marinated recipes that you can make ahead and just pop in the oven when its dinner time.. And this one is so mouth-watering, you’ll be saving a piece or two for yourself in the end!
This chicken sits quite happily in the fridge for 24 hours to deepen the marinade flavour and darken the outside of the meat. I cook in a preheated oven or it is excellent cooked on the BBQ.
I like to buy a whole chicken and then cut it into 8-10 pieces, that way, everyone gets a bit that they like and everyone gets some crispy skin which is part of the pleasure of this chicken.
