We liked this recipe VERY MUCH, easy to make. I used chicken thighs, pounded them and cooked slow. Served them with diggys roasted ranch potatoes and corn on the cob. The recipe is very adapatable, I'm going to try it using my Red Onion Jelly.

I used fresh rosemary from the garden, it is a little strong this time of year but worked well. I also used 4 minced cloves of garlic because we love garlic. Very easy and very good.
