    Easy-to-make chicken thighs are a favorite for both kids and adults. They are good served with rice and broccoli.

      I thought I had already written a review, but apparently I didn't.
      This recipe was a wonderful surprise! I had my nieces and one of my nephews over (7,8,10) and they are the pickiest eaters ever-and they don't like the same things. I was SHOCKED when all three of them devoured these, even with the little bit of spice on it. I made them with chicken drumsticks, skin on, so the kids could pull it off and take down the spice a notch if they wanted. I made 10 total, in addition to a pizza and some roasted pork (again- pickiest kids ever- I always have to have more than 1 thing or someone will refuse to eat), and everything else was more or less untouched. More left overs for me and the hubby, but still! We also thought this recipe was great for us.

      Forced alterations, which turned out great:
      I didn't make gravy, and I substituted all spice for ginger as I discovered I was out mid-cooking.

      Very good. Very tasty and easy to make. My husband was able to make it, and he never cooks.

      My picky family really liked this recipe. We all liked the lime/ginger flavor, and we just loved the red pepper flakes. In fact, we may use more pepper next time. I will use a little less soy sauce, though, because I thought it was a little salty. I didn't make the gravy - didn't need it. Thanks for sharing, ellie2.
