READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Carianne

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.
