And of course you favorite marinade. I chose orange juice, red paprika, turmeric, salt and pepper. After having everything chopped the following will marinate the chicken for about 45min approximately up to 1 hour. Being an acid-based marinade, times must be respected. IF you spend that time the acid will break the protein bonds in the chicken. This will make it harden after two hours.
After placing the pieces in the tray, cover it with aluminum foil. In this way we will prevent the chicken from burning and cooking properly. You will notice that I have left the chicken skin, in this case I like the flavor it provides. If you want your food to have less fat content, the solution is to remove the skin.
