"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."

"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."
