    It was very good, just took a while longer than I anticipated so we ended up eating quite late.

    Loved this recipe! I agree that one hour is too long to cook the chicken, 45 minutes is enough. My sauce was also on the thin side so I added two tablespoons of the seasoned flour before serving. Loved the flavor of the sauce. I will definitely make this again!

    This was really good, an hour was too long for me since the sauce was almost all gone when I went to take it out. And it really didn’t need that much flour (I had 6 thighs) I’ll probably do 1 cup and half a tablespoon of the spice mix so I don’t need to waste so much after the chicken is coated. Will make again

    I doubled it, because I had more chicken. I don’t reccomend doubling the sauce as it doesn’t come out as the recipie intends if you do

    Delicious recipe for chicken thighs. The only change I made was to substitute light cream for the heavy cream. I would definitely make again!

    I had to accommodate a little, as I ran out of cream, but it was definitely delicious! The instructions could use a little specifying as I had to go searching through the comments to find out how to prepare the onions and garlic for cooking. Also, I used garlic powder, and I’m a small town girl, so if the garlic she describes in the recipe exists, I’m sorry. But it definitely was very yummy!

    I didn’t have limes so used lemon and added siracha instead of red chili peps didn’t have that either. Still came out yummy

    I didn't have bone in chicken thighs so I used boneless. I cut the bake time down to 30 mins and I also added some cornstarch to thicken sauce after it was done cooking. We all loved it, it turned out great!!

    Great easy recipe. We’re dairy free, so I subbed the cream with full fat coconut milk and it was on point. Left out the chili powder and red peppers, for the toddler. And only used one cup of the chicken broth, per what others suggested.

    A great recipe! It definitely had too much flour indicated, I would maybe 1/4 of what was recommended, since you dont need that much to coat the chicken or for the sauce. I would also use maybe half of the chicken broth recommended, since it did turn out a little bit soupy. But the spices were great and it was sooooo well done, you could pull it apart so easily.

    Very good! Family loved it. The only thing I would do different next time is put one cup of broth instead of two. It was a little more soupy instead of gravy-like but otherwise great tasting recipe.
    Mrs.Brown a year ago yummy!! I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs and added a little thyme and extra chili peppers. Instead of putting it in the oven, I simmered on the stove for 40 min. The whole fam loved it!!😋

    BOMB Used chicken breast instead

    Good! I somehow missed the part about coating the chicken in flour but they were still fine. I added mushrooms to the sauce and made everything in a Dutch oven, which also took about an hour to cook.

    DELICIOUS!!! I doubled the recipe. Was a hit with the husband & the toddler! Definitely adding this to the returning recipes folder!

    So moist! I would definitely make these again. Very tasty. They are a little work, but so worth it. My sauce came out thin, but it still tasted good. Going into my favorites.

    Good! Cooked the thighs in a separate pan while making the sauce and avoided the need for an hour in the oven

    Delicious! Will definitely make this again. Only thing I changed was instead of 2 cups of chicken broth, I did 1 cup plus 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup dry white wine.
