Preheat the oven to fan 170C/conventional 190C/gas 5. Put the chicken breasts, skin-side up, in one layer in a shallow ovenproof dish or tin. Put all the remaining ingredients in a bowl and warm through in the microwave or a small pan for 1 minute, then stir to mix everything together and pour over the chicken.
