This recipe makes fabulous, juicy, full of flavor chicken! I just threw it together one night when Boyfriend was hungry at 9 pm, and needed something quick.


  1. preheat oven to 450.
  2. mix all wet ingredients plus rosemary.
  3. season chicken to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. put chicken in oven safe dish skin side down.
  5. Pour sauce over chicken, slightly lifting piece so sauce gets under chicken.
  6. spoon some over chicken.
  7. bake for 40 min or until juices are clear, spooning sauce over chicken every so often.
  8. turn skin side up after 20 min, continue baking and basting every few mins.
  9. spoon sauce over chicken before serving.

Wow! This recipe was easy and full of flavor! Minimal ingredients (had everything on hand) and budget friendly. I increased the servings as I had 6 thighs that needed to be cooked asap, so I increased the ingredients slightly (by half again) and it worked out perfectly. The sauce produced a nice glaze. I served it with scalloped potatoes and roasted corn on the cob which resulted in a perfect and easy meal. Thanks for posting this. This one is going in permanent rotation!
