This is one of our new fave's. Instead of broiling it, I bake it at 375 for about 45 minutes,stirring every 15 minutes or so. This way, you don't have to deal with smoking! This gives you time to prepare rice or noodles and you've got a fantastic meal ready in less than an hour. Yummy!!

This was "OK" at best. I even added a little cayenne, and could have added more. It just didn't have much flavor, maybe it would make a better marinade. Probably won't make again, hubby and kids just took the skin off so it seems to be a waste.

This is the way to cook this meal- I made this for lunch today! I used half the butter and i baked it in the oven first for 35 min on 375 degrees turning it over half way through and then i broiled it for 5 min on each side. It turned out perfect. I would recommend before you put it in the broiler put it onto a flat baking tray on top of foil without the juices just place the chicken on it because that is what causes the smoke to fill the house.

I've never checked the recipe after I put it up...Thank you all for your ratings. I must say, I usually broil either boneless, SKINLESS theighs or just a whole split chicken. I don't know why it ended up saying "with skin". The theighs are much less fatty if they're skinned...but the whole split chicken is just beautiful when it's presented on a serving platter garnished with more parsley. Again, thank you & enjoy!

I made this recipe last night for my family, but with a twisit. Instead of using chicken thighs. I used chicken breasts, boneless, skinless and sliced. I only cooked them for about 10 minutes. They turned out wonderful!!! I served plain rice with it. We made more of the sauce to put on top of the rice. My family are hugh garlic nuts. We love ANYTHING with GARLIC!! TRY THIS RECIPE TONIGHT it'll be a hit with your family too!!!! :)

Very good, certainly easy and quick. The only thing I would suggest for some people is to use a light-salt soy, I found the regular soy sauce to be too salty for me.

My husband loved this recipe!! The chicken was very tender and juicy. I used two tbs of soy sauce and one of balsamic vinegar. Very very good. Thank you very much for the recipe!

Very good! I used 1/4 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup butter, and rosemary instead of parsley. Also bone-in thighs, and broiled with rack set at second from top for about 30 minutes. This recipe got rave reviews from even my very picky son!
