I found this very delicious...I skipped the freezing part and went straight to the cooking...I did slip the thighs under the broiler for a few minutes to give them a more of crispy skin and to help brown them...This is very easy to prepare and I'm planning to make them again using the freezing method...thanks for posting.

Really good but burns quickly when cooked on the BBQ. Next time, I will use the oven.
