1. Clean chicken, trim off any extra fats then cut it into 4 parts.
2. Place chicken pieces into a zip-lock bag then add in the all the rest of the ingredients and coat it evenly.
3. Leave it in the fridge and season for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
4. Preheat the oven to 200 degree and grill for about 20 - 30 minutes until chicken is golden brown.
