This was yummy and so easy to make - a real keeper. I made the marinade in the morning to save time in the evening. The recipe said "bone-in chicken thighs", but I wasn't sure if I was to remove the skin as it is Cooking Light. The fat content was high in the recipe. Anyway, I used skinless; and my husband loved it. Really flavorful. I served it with jasmine rice with butter, onion and fresh basil and also Roasted Green Beans with Browned Balsamic Butter. (See CL recipe Roasted Asparagus with Browned Balsamic Butter. I cut the recipe in half and use 1 lb. green beans.)
