Preheat oven to 425F (220C). In a 9×13-inch (3-L) casserole dish, stir orange juice with salsa, soy sauce and sugar, if using. Add chicken and turn several times to coat with mixture.
Bake, uncovered, in centre of 425F (220C) oven, turning chicken every 10 minutes, until it is dark golden brown, about 30 minutes. If chicken is browning too quickly, loosely cover with a piece of foil. Serve immediately and drizzle pan sauce overtop. Perfect with rice and broccoli.
