1. On a clean cutting board, break down the chicken into wings, breasts, thighs and drumsticks. Discard the carcass (or reserve for making stock).
2. Place the chicken pieces in a resealable bag, add the remaining ingredients, seal the bag and coat the chicken thoroughly. Allow the chicken to marinate for 8 to 12 hours.
3. When you’re ready cook the marinated chicken, roast with the accompanying marinating ingredients or discard the marinating components and grill or sear the chicken.
