Place the chicken in a large dish and evenly coat with ¾ of the marinade mixture. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for min. 2 hours.

Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large non-stick pan. Sear the chicken for approx. 2-3 minutes on each side. Work in batches until all the chicken has been part-cooked.

Transfer the chicken pieces to an oven-proof dish and cover with the remaining marinade mixture. Roast in a preheated oven at 240C / 220C Fan for 20 minutes, or until the chicken has been cooked through.

Garnish with fresh coriander and serve with a fresh salad and buttery roasted corn cobs.
