This is fast and easy. Don't be afraid to switch out the dark meat chicken for white, use 4 breast halves instead of 8 thighs.

This was very good. Used chicken breast instead of thighs because that's what I had. My DH suggested that the sauce would be good for stir fry. Think I'll try it sometime. Thanks Lady Lisette for posting this recipe!

Very good! Only change I made was leaving out the crushed red pepper because I "can't take the heat!!" Will make again everyone loved it.
