This is a very tasty recipe that you can adjust for the amount of heat that you want in the dish. I did not have any sambal oelek and added some cayenne pepper instead...about a 1/4 tsp. Chia, the oven temperature scared me and I set my oven to 400 degrees F. instead. I was concerned that the thighs would burn before they were done. I might have used breasts at that temperature since they cook a little quicker than the bone-in thighs. They took 45 minutes to be completely cooked. Overall, this is a wonderful recipe that will be used again for a quick and delicious meal that my DH and I both enjoyed.

Good chicken, but as DH said, nothing special. Made to put atop a salad for dinner. Used 1 large boneless skinless chicken breast with 1/2 recipe of the sauce. Flavor was good, but it wasn't spicy in the least, will definitely add more sambaal oelek next time because we like spicy! We also let it marinate for about 30 minutes; I'm sure longer would be better. Cooked on the grill since it was a beautiful evening! Will probably make again! Thanks for posting.

Wasn't such a big hit with the fam -- maybe should have used thighs or chicken parts instead of breast but the flavors weren't as good as I'd hoped
