Mmmmm. This is good. The more I ate the better it tasted, ended up licking the plate. Bad Kelly. lol. Used 1 cup of chicken broth, then added a bit of cornstarch at the end to have a bit more sauce. Added 1/2 cup red onion, chopped. Omitted the cilantro as didn't have any. Prepared this as a skillet dinner: browned chicken, removed, softened onions & spices, added broth & chicken back in, covered & lightly simmered 20 mins. Served with rice and sliced tomatoes. Delicious.

I fixed this recipe last night for my DH and I. I must admit some mistakes!! I used 1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar, and my mistakes.......... I forgot to sprinkle with the cilantro that was waiting, and also forgot to put the lime wedges on the plate!!! Even then, we really enjoyed these chicken thighs. The 2 saved as leftovers for tonight will have the two missing items added. Thank you, Oolala, for this very nice recipe, we'll have it again.
