      I couldn't find boneless skinless thighs, so used regular bone in thighs. Cooked exactly as posted. The taste was delicious, but I found the skin really didn't crisp up, and the meat wasn't really tender. I think that was my fault for using bone in day after reheating the chicken was nice and tender and even more flavorful!! Thanks for posting!
