1Combine the orange marmalade, tomato sauce, soy sauce, orange juice and crushed garlic in a bowl, stirring well.
2Place the chicken pieces into an extra large ziplock bag and pour the marinade over them.
3Seal the bag and place it in the fridge, for at least 3-4 hours, preferably overnight.
4Turn the bag around during this time, making sure that the chicken pieces are completely covered in the marinade.
5When you are ready to cook the chicken, drain the chicken pieces, retaining the marinade for basting.
6Place them on the grill of a preprepared braai, basting with the marinade as they cook.
7Turn the chicken pieces often until they are cooked through, to your liking.
8If you are cooking them in an oven, place the chicken pieces on an oven tray and cook in a pre heated, 190 C oven, for approximately 45 - 50 minutes.
9Baste the chicken with the sauce, at least three to four times, during the cooking process.
