    Cream Puff's Note:

    Not your 'typical' tequila-chicken recipe. This recipe uses bone-in chicken pieces and is baked in the oven - no marinating! You will love the succulent, juicy taste of this chicken - and the ease of preparation. NOTE: Please use bone-in chicken pieces as you won't have the same delicious results with boneless, skinless chicken.

      We didn't really like this as much as I thought we would. I used bone-in/skin-on thighs and legs and cooked as directed. I like how the skin got crispy and browned, but the sauce never thickened and with the chicken sitting on the onions, it didn't really soak up any of the sauce in the bottom of the pan. The sauce did have a good flavor (a little too much oregano for us) so we poured it over the chicken, but it was a little watery. Made for PAC Spring 2010.

      This was just what i was looking for. It was easy and very good. Cooking the chicken first made it crispy and then putting the marinade on at the end added great flavor without over cooking it and then it made it very moist and juicey. Crispy, Moist, Juicey!
