Marinade for chicken:
2 tbsp olive oil

  3. Heat a small splash of olive oil in a non-stick pan over a medium to high heat. Once hot, place chicken in skin side down and cook for roughly 4-5 minutes, or until skin begins to crisp. Remember, the chicken will cook in the oven, we just want a crispy skin!
