This is one recipe we make quite often. I found this recipe in Taste of Home. The original recipe calls for cooking in a skillet on the stove, but I also bake it in the oven. Same great tasting end result. I reduce the amount of red pepper flakes because we don't like it too hot. I serve it with rice and vegetables. The baking time may differ depending on the size of the thighs.
