Coat a rack in a roasting pan with cooking spray.

Remove chicken from marinade, and place, breast side up, on rack. Pour marinade over chicken. Tuck wings under.

Bake, covered with aluminum foil, at 375° for 45 minutes. Uncover; coat chicken with cooking spray, and sprinkle with paprika. Bake, uncovered, 45 more minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into chicken thigh registers 180°, basting occasionally. Remove from oven, and let stand 15 minutes.
