4. Apply this marinate to chicken pieces, make sure the above mixure covers all the sides of chicken pipces. Cover the bowl and set aside or refrigerate for one to 2 hours (the longer the better).

6. Place/arrange the chicken on tray with all mixture and cook 30-40 min @ 400 F and most of the sauce is dried.

5. Pre heat oven for 1 or 2 minutes @ 350 F.

7. Change the other side chicken pieces and cook 15 - 20 min or until meat is tender.
8. Arrange chicken pieces on a plate and spread with onion rings on the top of the chicken. Garnish it with the cilantro. Set the lemon wedges around the sides of the chicken and serve it. Lemon juice may be squeezed on top of the chicken for added flavor.

I hope you love this dish. :)
