  3. Preheat oven to 190 degrees. Put the meat together with the marinade in a refractory form, cover with foil, bake 30 minutes, then take off foil and cook until the appearance of a beautiful Golden brown.

Highly recommend to cook the chicken in the slow cooker. For 40-50 minutes in the "Baking" is the abundance of aromatic gravy and tender meat that literally separated from the bone. Yum!
