My boys loved this. I did modify a bit by adding about a quarter cup brown sugar. I baked over chicken thighs and pulled off skin after 30 min.

I made this recipe as an unexperienced cook and it was very easy to make and delicious. I made this with some yellow rice and some corn on the side. All 5 people that ate loved it, had seconds, and requested I make it another time. I did have to leave it in the over another 10 minutes after the last 15 to make sure it was golden brown.
