  1. Looks good. For baking in the oven—how long and what temp? Do I marinade the chicken first with the sauce or do I boil the sauce and pour over the chicken?

  2. I marinate for 8 hours then roast for approx 45-60 mins at 450° basting toward the end. I tripled the garlic and roughly chopped it so it wouldn’t burn. The sauce is delicious.
