      Preheat the oven to 400°F. Put all the marinade ingredients in a big plastic bag and add the chicken and the onion wedges. Shake around so that all the ingredients get well coated in the marinade.

      When you are ready to cook, put the chicken legs into a roasting dish with the marinade, onions, and tomatoes. Cook in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. The tomatoes should burst and the onions will go crispy around the edges. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in the microwave at 800W for 8 minutes -- add to the oven with the chicken when they are done to crisp up the skins.

      To serve, put the potatoes on plates and add the chicken, roast tomatoes, and onion together with the marinade.
