Method:

Preheat oven at 450°F. In a mixing bowl stir together all ingredients except for chicken. Taste and adjust the seasoning according to your liking.

Marinate chicken pieces in the mixture and let it rest overnight in the refrigerator.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and brush with butter. Place the chicken on a rack in a roasting pan and bake it for about 30 minutes turning once in between or until the juices run clear when the chicken piece is pierced by a knife near the bone.

Serve with your favorite chutney and enjoy.
