Today I have another delicious chicken recipe for you.

Again the recipe calls for chicken thighs. You can use bone-in and pick out the bones as you eat, or go ahead and buy boneless, skinless chicken thighs which is what I typically do. We would rather not deal with the bones!

I’ve also made this with chicken breast (cut into quarters before cooking) and chicken tenders. Both versions worked out fine, but we preferred the taste of the chicken thighs.
