I take it that by "bake" you just mean its easier for you to use the oven. I would, for what you want to use them for, braise chicken thighs or legs in the oven. Not only are they the best tasting parts but are the cheapest. If you have a dutch oven that is best, just brown the chicken in a little oil, add liquid, heat, cover and cook at 300 ish, turning and checking every 1/2 hour until the meat is falling off the bone. Any malty beer would do but stout or porter would be great and a smoked porter very interesting, I would add a little acid ( tomatoes, lime juice, a tiny bit of cider vinegar, etc.) and just enough sweet to balance, maybe honey or maple syrup. If you don't have a dutch oven a deep roasting pan will do, it just needs to be small enough so you can cover the chicken halfway or more in liquid without wasting too much beer. When its done you can remove the chicken and reduce the liquid on the stovetop to a sauce, perhaps adding a bit of tomato paste. You can then adjust sour/sweet/spice. Smoked paprika wouldn't be too shabby. And homemade tortillas. I'm hungry!
