Sensational flavours. I made this with skinless chicken thighs and used only one dried chilli (it was quite large). This has just come out of the oven and I have already stolen several bites. When it is cool, I will mix it with homemade mayo (Recipe #207860) and some chopped celery and onion to make chicken salad for wraps. My guests will be thrilled. Thanks so very much for posting.
