    I marinated the chicken all day then baked it. I used the pan juices with the chicken. The chicken was very moist and had a good flavor.

    May have been that I skipped a step because I was in a hurry, but this did not turn out well for me. Advice for the future is plan better your cooking time.

    It was really delicious. I used 6 chicken thighs and doubled the recipe. I also added 4 cloves of chopped garlic to add more flavor. I would highly recommend.
