Line a large nonreactive ovenproof dish with Multix bake and transfer the chicken and all the marinade, cover with a layer of Multix bake topped by a sheet of Multix Alfoil, use the alfoil (crimped round the edge) to seal the dish. Bake covered for about ½ an hour. Remove the alfoil and cook for another 20-25 mins turning chicken occasionally and brushing with the marinade mixture. The chicken is ready when its cooked through, tender caramelized and dark golden brown. Make the chilli sauce while the chicken is cooking by simply mixing the ingredients in a small bowl.
