A staple dish in our place, this one is undeniably tasty and a true crowd pleaser! Marinated overnight, the flavours are deeper and more intense and baked until cooked and the skin is slightly crispy! 🤤 We used chicken thighs for this recipe but you can you can also substitute chicken breasts for this, it’s equally delicious.
