      Wonderful recipe! I used boneless skinless thighs, so I had a shorter cooking time. Otherwise I made as posted and the smells and flavor were absolutely wonderful. This is a keeper recipe for me....thanks for posting a winner!

      Wow, this chicken was wonderful! I prefer white meat chicken to dark. So I used two chicken breasts instead of legs. Although the list of ingredients seems long, this came together quickly. I loved the combination of spices and the sweet/spicy result after cooking! Thanks for sharing! Made for Ali Baba Babes for ZWT5.
