I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and cooked them in the oven (too much snow piled up to get to the gas grill). I cooked them at 425 for 25 minutes, then put them under the broiler for 2 1/2 minutes to brown the spice topping, which turned out to be just right. Good combination of spices but the recipe called for way too much salt for my taste. I would def make it again but would use 1/3 or perhaps 1/2 the amount of salt the recipe calls for.
