“I came up with this in a moment of intense laziness and WOW! It's an incredible recipe that literally takes no more than ten minutes to make...including cooking time! How many chicken recipes can make that claim?? Ingredients aren't fancy and all you need is a bowl, spoon and some saran wrap! The chicken thighs come out SO moist and tender. My husband went nuts for this recipe...and I usually cook fancy stuff! Please...please review the recipe if you try it. Thank you!”
