12-15chicken legs (bone in, skin on) You can also use breast or thigh
1/2 cup of good quality maple syrup
1/2 cup of soy sauce
1/2 cup of orange marmalade jam
1/4 cup of dry sherry or Chinese Rice Wine
2 Tbs of rice wine vinegar
2 inches of grated fresh ginger
4-5 cloves of fresh garlic grated
1/4 tsp of Chinese 5 Spice
red chili flakes to taste (I put 1 heaping Tablespoon)
Mix all the ingredients in the marinade together. Put chicken in a ziploc safe bag and pour marinade over chicken. Make sure all the chicken gets coated well with the marinade. Marinate overnight in the fridge. **remember to place ziploc into a large bowl or tray to catch accidental drips**
Place Chicken and all the marinade into a large baking dish. Preheat oven to 400 degree. Bake Chicken in the middle of the oven. Cook chicken for 45-55 minutes and baste chicken with marinade juices every 15 minutes.
