"We enjoyed this tasty and easy to make recipe. Love the sweet and spicy taste of the sauce. I used 8 thighs, but used the amount of sauce called for in the recipe. I did not use the oil; instead, I browned the thighs in a non-stick skillet. I drained all but 2 tablespoons of the fat instead of using all of it. I also seasoned the thighs and let them sit in the refrigerator before cooking. I used sugar-free apricot jam and freshly made horseradish instead of horseradish sauce to save on the calories. Will make this recipe again."
