    It burned in half of the cooking time (pan). A little disappointed, but I am still putting in the oven to finish cooking. I wanted crispy, but not THAT crispy…

    Made this last night for my husband and I, it was delicious and super easy! Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfectly, juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside…with amazing flavor! Thanks for this!

    I am not sure how anyone who made this wasn’t eating absolutely raw chicken. My husband and I are sitting here waiting and waiting for it to be finished. It just isn’t happening. It looks great and I am sure will turn out fantastic, but the cooking time is waaaaaay off.

    Has anyone ever tried this with boneless, skinless thighs?

    First let me say, this was delicious!! My husband is not a poultry eater but I have been trying to make him a convert for the last year. He will only eat chicken thighs so I relented, but it is difficult to find good recipes for thighs. He LOVED this! And I love cooking in my cast iron pan so this recipe was perfect! Thanks!!
