Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Awesome chicken! It is juicy and so full of flavour! I used 4 thighs and the full amount of the other ingredients. And I am glad I did. Served this over sautéed beet greens and onions and grilled romaine. Drizzled the sauce over chicken/greens to which DH said "another of Pia's hits"! Will be making this again & again. Thanks Pia!
