    From Eating Well April/May 2005. I have used boneless skinless thighs, and it worked very well. I also suggest using fresh mint!

      Well this was a pleasant surprise. I loved the flavorful crust that formed on the chicken, and the mint did not taste strange like I thought it would. I'd like to try this with chicken breasts instead of thighs in the future. Thanks for sharing.

      Only had 3 hours to marinate and used chicken breasts with slits cut in them, but still sooo good and moist! (Added 4 cloves of garlic though) It tasted like it was cooked on the grill due to the charring from the broiler.
