3) Combine together the salt, garlic, cumin, oregano, pepper and fruit juices.
4) Pour the mixture all over the chicken, cover and allow to marinate for about 24 hours in the fridge. Turn about 2 to 3 times during the marinating period.
5) Preheat oven to temperature of 350 degrees.
6) Either use individual clay pots or cut a kitchen foil into 6 squares of 30 cm. each. Brush each h liberally with oil.
7) Among the squares, divide the chicken pieces and spoon the marinade evenly over each, holding the edges up in order to avoid spilling.
8) Fold the foil over the chicken. Seal the edges tightly.
9) In a baking dish, arrange the foil envelopes.
10) Bake in the preheated oven for 1 ½ hours, till the chicken is soft and the juices run clear. 1 hour into the cooking time, carefully open the parcel and check the doneness of the chicken.
11) Slit open the envelopes, place on a decorative serving platter and serve with hot crusty bread of tortillas. Makes an excellent appetizer.
