For the life of me could not get any picante sauce so used a medium taco sauce and regular orange juice as we don't get concentrate here and instead of the optional honey I added agave syrup for the honey, the result was tasty and moist chicken thighs (bone in and skin on), so even though the ingredients were not exactly as per recipe all the flavours were there and they worked well together and they took 50 minutes to bake at 175C fan forced.
