Recipe by stephanierndos

Found the basic recipe in Cooking Light Magazine - I changed some spices and added more juice (with the broth and wine). It sounded like a great way to use up some chicken thighs I got for a steal at the grocery store and it being colder out now, this turned out FANTASTIC!!! My family loved it, and my hubby is VERY picky, he had seconds (which is okay, because it is low cal and good for you).
