      There is a wonderful amount of great flavor here. I made one change, I replaced the wine with chicken broth which worked well for me. The chicken was tender, moist and delicious. I served it with lemon saffron rice and cumin roasted carrots for a company worthy dinner. Made for NA/ME forum's Visit To Tunisia 10/13. Thanks Mike :D

      Full of flavor and easy! I did have to dilute the marinade for my 90 year old dad. He thought it was too spicy when he tasted it. So, I started over and just used a 1/8 tsp of the cayenne (or less) and added honey and a couple of tablespoons of melted butter to further cut the heat. I marinated the thighs all day, baked them about 50 minutes, and yummy they were so flavorful. I served the thighs with these condiments: sliced green olives, raisins (plumped in hot water), toasted slivered almonds, parsley, and lemon zest. I also served lemon wedges to squeeze too. My sides were whole wheat couscous, sauteed kale, corn on the cob, and a green salad. Everyone in the family including my dad gave this a five star rating! PS: For those of us who like spicy, I put cayenne on the table to add as desired! I will be making this again!
