  1. Combine marinade in a bowl (which has a cover) well. Add in chicken and mix well. Cover bowl and leave to marinate in fridge for at least 1 hour or overnight, if possible.
  2. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 200C and remove chicken from fridge. Let chicken return to room temperature.
  3. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil and arrange chicken in 1 layer without the marinade.
  4. Bake chicken in oven for abt 30-35 mins; removing to baste chicken with remaining marinade once and turn chicken over.
  5. Then heat and cook remaining marinade in a pan on slow fire till it bubbles and is reduced and thickened – takes a few mins. Remove from heat and pour into sauce dish.
  6. Serve baked chicken with marinade sauce.

It’s good; like the sauce a lot although it’s not spicy at all.. 🙂
