My “pickatarian” child is choosy but willing to eat this chicken glazed with apple juice and thyme. I dish it up with mashed potatoes and green beans. —Kerry Picard, Spokane, Washington

"This recipe is very good. I did add a little red pepper flakes to cut the sweetness of the apple juice. I gave it 4 stars only because I don't think you could get the chicken done in the time and method the recipe states. I browned the chicken, put it in my Dutch oven, poured the sauce over it and baked it at 350* until the chicken was totally done. I served the thighs and sauce over basmati rice with green beans."
