"Oooh Delish"! Beside quick and easy, "The Sauce Made The Dish"! I only had 6 thighs but used the full sauce recipe. The amount of sauce was perfect. I did add 2 cloves of minced garlic to the sauce. (We are garlic lovers.) This is good enough for company and I will use the recipe. Maybe it's just me, but, when I use 12 thighs, I intend to "double" the sauce. I don't think the amount of sauce as listed is enough. Thanks for a winner!

It smells heavenly right now as it is baking! Tastes just as good. Some of the wee ones (4 years old) did not like the chili powder, but the rest of us gave this dish a 5 thumbs up. Let me tell you, Charlene was not kidding when she said prep time 5 minutes! This was so fast and simple to put together. Finger licken' good

It's not often that you can easily give a recipe 5 stars for flavor AND ease in making! Use of the salsa added a nice flavor to the sauce, not over powering and it doesn't scream "salsa here-grab the corn chips!" I followed recipe as stated and the next time I'll play with it by omitting the ketchup, use diced tomatoes or tom. sauce and stir in chopped green onions at the end of the cooking process. Note, if using thighs, the 45 minute cook time works well, if using breasts, at this temp. 30 minutes or less would cook them without over doing it.

I loved this recipe but made the following changes 1)Substituted tomato sauce for the ketchup..no sugar and richer taste 2)Made more sauce than needed to not only coat the thighs but to surrounded them as they baked. Made the thighs so much more juicier

The base for the sauce was good, but it seemed to be missing something. I added a half tablespoon more mustard and instead of chili powder I used 2 teaspoons of Emeril's Southwest Seasoning. I also added a couple shakes of Cholula hot sauce. So yummy I could eat just the sauce. Love that it was so quick to prepare and the whole house smelled wonderful.

Very yummy indeed! I have done this many times now - with bone-in chicken (no skin) and chicken breasts, and thighs. It is simple, quick and very tasty!

This was so easy, I wasn't expecting much, but it is so good! Our young kids loved it, too. Very mild but tasty barbecued chicken flavor. A good way to introduce kids to barbecue as it is very sweet and mild. Thanks!

This was shockingly tasty given its simplicity. My wife loved it. We're definitely going to have it again.
