Step 1

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Put the chicken breasts, skin-side up, in one layer in a shallow ovenproof dish or tin. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Put all the remaining ingredients in a bowl and warm through in the microwave or a small pan for 1 minute, then stir to mix everything together and pour over the chicken.

2. Slide the dish into the oven and roast the chicken for 30-40 minutes, basting every 10 minutes or so. The juices will gradually thicken and give the chicken a shiny coating at the end. Leave the chicken to stand for 5 minutes before serving.
