Another chicken recipe that is easy has a little kick to it. I have used chicken thighs and topped with sour cream and green onions.

This was very tasty! I made a little extra marinade to add in at the end because I didn't think it would be enough. I served it over brown rice. I didn't have any sour cream but I don't think it was necessary. Thanks!
