Prep: 15 minutes; Cook: 25 minutes; other: 1 hourWe like using chicken thighs for this recipe because the meat is more flavorful and stands up to the robustness of the marinade. With a quick one-hour marinating period, this chicken dish received top ratings from our taste-testing panel, but you may marinate the chicken all day or overnight if you prefer.
