Delicious! Make sure to get the seasoning under the skin and let it sit covered in the fridge overnight.

This I a wonderfully and carefully balanced flavor able main dish. I served it with rice to sop up the juices. Next time I make it, I'm going to add shallots sliced in half lengthwise. I think the color contrast and delicate flavor addition would give this recipe an additional notch up. Try this recipe. It is so good.

I wish there was a cooking time on this for boneless skinless chicken thighs as well.
