Grab all ingredients and put in a blender and mix well. Use this paste for marinating your chicken pieces.

Step 3:

Rub the marinade over each piece and wait for one hour or overnight. The longer it remains in the mix the better it gets the spice in the meat.

Step 4:

Line them on a lightly greased non sticky foil paper already set on a baking tray. Grill or broil for no more than 20 minutes. Keep the oven at 360 degree. Check whether they got cooked evenly.

If you need more time to get a caramelized look in the outer skin then keep more 3 to 5 minutes in the oven.
