Nice recipe, very tasty. I used a combination of Sriracha and Sweet Chili Sauce, marinated for a couple of hours. YES, it was HOT!! But we don't eat the skin anyway so there was just a hint of heat. 450 oven temp was a little too hot, next time I'll cook longer at a lower temp. I'll use this recipe again.

LOVED this recipe. I've made it twice now and it came out perfect both times. Marinated the leg quarters for 15 min in vacuum ziplocs, and it wasn't too spicy for my son who doesn't like spicy food. Next time I will try marinating some of them for an hour or more to see if they are more spicy. This is now my GO TO chicken recipe!

These were pretty good. I tried on breast and liked it better, but I am not a fan of dark meat. Hubby liked it either way.
