Italian Baked Chicken Thighs

 

Very good. I did think it was a bit bland as written. It may have been partially my fault as I forgot to salt my pasta water. Will definitely make again but add a bit more seasoning.

We really liked this dish I only had diced tomatoes, so I cooked the sauce a little longer. It worked well. I will make it again for sure.
We love Italian chicken recipes and this one will get made again really soon. So tasty!No need to modify this recipe.made as stated and it tasted fine made again and added extra garlic and red peppers for our own taste.

This was a fantastic recipe! My family gobbled their chicken up in no time. It was the crispiest, juiciest, most tender chicken we ever had. Thank you so much!!!!
