    Pretty good. I used chicken breasts instead and I added about 1 tablespoon of honey as suggested by another user. Thanks.

  2. Hi I am going to make this tonight with chicken thighs, is that bone-in or boneless thighs that are pictured in the recipe? Just want to make sure my cooking times are accurate 🙂 thanks!

    My whole family loved this! I used frozen rainbow carrots from Trader Joe’s to save some time with no other alterations to the recipe. My whole family ate every last bit! My youngest loved it so much he said it’s his new favorite meal and asked if we could make it 100 more times this year! Thank you for the great recipe.

  4. I liked the recipe a lot, but I almost threw my phone across the room since the video featured on the page took up my whole screen every time I tried to scroll anywhere and that’s sometime you might want to look into.
    It’s already happened about 10 times while trying to write this comment…

    This is such a fantastic recipe! So simple to make, yet so flavorful. I’ve thrown a bit of honey into the mix each time I’ve made it and I love the addition, but I’m sure it’s just perfect without it too.

    Thanks for sharing this!

  6. The total time is listed as 35 minutes, yet the cook time alone is 36-38 minutes, without prep. Am I missing something?

    I’m a dad who is trying to learn how to cook to ease the burden from my wife. I can’t tell you how amazing your site and videos are. It is so hard to find easy, HEALTHY, meals that I can actually cook for my family. On top of that you provide nutritional information. Your work is fantastic, keep it up.

    Hi! I am going to try this yummy recipe this week! What kind of pan would you recommend using for stove top and then putting it in the oven? I am making this for a large group– so the bigger pan would be best! A link would be amazing! (amazon or anything!) thanks so much!!!

  9. Hi! I’m confused…if a serving size is 2 thighs and the recipe calls for 8 thighs, how do you get 6 servings? I would think that it would be 4 servings?
