Put the chicken, garlic, oregano, vinegar, oil, dates, olives, capers and and bay leaves in a large shallow bowl or reusable food bag, season, toss well, and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least a couple of hours, or overnight.
Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Arrange the chicken in a single layer in a shallow baking dish and evenly spoon around the marinade. Sprinkle the chicken skins with the sugar and pour the wine around the dish, avoiding the chicken.
Bake for 1 hr, basting with the juices after 30 mins. Meanwhile, cook the orzo until tender, then drain well and toss with a knob of butter and most of the herbs. Sprinkle the rest of the herbs over the chicken and serve with the orzo.
