Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken pieces close together in a baking pan, skin side up. Bake for 45 minutes.
Mix all other ingredients together and pour over the chicken pieces, covering thoroughly. Bake another 45 minutes, basting occasionally. The sauce will thicken and form a glaze. If the chicken needs more browning, remove the pieces to another pan and broil for a few minutes, watching carefully. Scrape the sauce from the first pan into a bowl to serve as "extra" or pour over the chicken when done cooking. (The sauce will burn if it cooks too much or at too high a temperature.)
Serve hot or at room temperature.
