      This is definitely fall off the bone good!!! I love that it uses ingredients I normally have on hand and so few ingredients but such tasty chicken. I made this using just under 2 lbs of chicken thighs and legs. I marinaded the chicken and then slow cooked it in the oven at 250 degrees for 3 hours and then removed the foil and cook another hour at 350, along with the rice side dish, to brown up the chicken skin and cook down the juices. Thanks for a great recipe SaucyCook. Made for Spring PAC 09.
