    Very Good
    This is really yummy, & definitely easy! I used 6 organic chicken thighs & increased the other ingredients proportionately. No Heinz chili sauce at my grocery, so I combined a can of diced tomatoes & jalapenos w/a couple of dollops of Asian chili-garlic sauce. Real comfort food! - 12/30/13
