Thaw the chicken at least an hour before baking. Pat dry with a clean paper towel.Tip - Frozen or wet chicken will result in too much liquid in the finished dish, plus the marinade won't stick to it.
Preheat the oven at 420 °F / 215 °C / Gas Mark 7 for at least 10 minutes before you add the chicken in.
Place the chicken pieces in the marinade, coat well. Tip - this marinated chicken can be kept in the fridge for up to 12 hours. Thaw an hour before baking.
Cook uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes turning the pieces over and basting them at least once in betweenTip - if you find the chicken is getting too dark in color, just tent it with aluminum foil. Personally, I do like the darker color so I did not tent mine.
When done remove and let sit for at least 5 minutes before serving. The pan juices are absolutely delicious and can be served over white rice. Tip - If the pan juices are too much, you can transfer them to a saucepan and reduce over medium-high heat until you get a thicker consistency.
