Orange Glazed Chicken

Chicken 1kg, with skin and bone, cut into 8 or 12 pieces

Soya sauce 1/4cup

Worcestershire sauce 1/4 cup

Brown sugar 1/4 cup

Salt to taste

Red chili flakes 1 tbs or according to taste

White pepper powder 1tsp

Orange marmalade 1cup

Tomato paste 1/2 cup

Garlic paste 2tbspoons

Chicken cube 1/2

Kashmiri red chilies 3(boil them in a little water so they become soft)

Ginger 2teaspoon

Cumin powder 3/4th tsp

Paprika powder 1tsp
Mix all the ingredients in a blender and marinate the chicken for 2 hours. Oil a baking dish and and put the chicken along with the marinade in it. 
Preheat oven on 400 degrees. Bake about 40-45 minutes till chicken is tender and sauce is reduced.

Make a wannabe stove oven:p that’s what I did. Place a karahi/pan, fill it half with dried banana leaves or put a stand in it and then put the frying pan with the chicken in it on that stand or on the dried leaves. Cover with a lid and  cook for 40 minutes on medium heat, and ten minutes on high heat, frequently checking the chicken and pouring the sauce from the pan on top of the chicken to make it more saucy and sticky which in easier terms is called basting. Turn off heat when sauce is reduced such that only a little is left and chicken is slightly dry and charred from the tips. 

Voila! Its done! :p
