We love serving chicken thighs at parties in place of wings. These are a great option for a dinner on your own, but sure are a crowd pleaser. Try them out for your next house party!

This was really, really good. Great balance of spices – not super spicy, but plenty of kick. Definitely going into our rotation! Thanks!
These are now my absolute favorite way to prepare chicken. We have these at least once a week at my house. We usually pair them with roasted Brussels sprouts – soo good!
These were delicious, we did them on the BBQ and they turned out great!
Hello! What can I use in place of the Palm Oil?
Super yummy…I used Olive Oil because I could not find Palm Oil and I forgot to add the Cayenne so I can only imagine how good it will be next time when I remember the cayenne! !
Wow, this was fantastic!!!! As someone else said, nice balance of spices! I used olive oil instead of palm oil, and did it on a bed of Near East Mediterranean Couscous (and added mushrooms and peas for color). Turned out really fabulous.
