For the marinade


  • STEP 1

    Remove the skin from the chicken, joint it, cut the breasts in half and separate the legs and thighs.

  • STEP 2

    Put the chicken pieces in a large bowl along with all the marinade ingredients. Toss, then rub the mixture into the chicken. Cover tightly and chill for 24 hrs.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Tip the chicken and marinade into a deep ovenproof dish. Cover and bake for 40 mins, then remove the lid and stir in the sugar, stock, browning sauce and flour mixture. Bake for another 15 mins, uncovered, turning the chicken and basting it every 5 mins.

  • STEP 4

    Check the chicken is cooked through. If not, bake for 15 mins more, then check again. Taste for seasoning, then scatter with the spring onions and serve with rice and peas and slaw, if you like.
