Molasses Glazed Chicken Thighs

I must say this has been the best December day that I have gotten to experience in a long time. The temps were in the 70’s and could have done without the wind, but the day was still sunny and fabulous! I figure it’ll be back in the 30’s by next week. I still love winter! I decided that since I was going shopping with some friends today that I wanted to make a dinner that could use some decent marinating time and I found this recipe at www.cookbookjunkie.blogspot.com. I changed it up a little bit and it was definitely worth it. The recipe originally called for broiling but I decided to just bake it in the oven. It turned out AMAZING and full of flavor! I can’t wait for you to try it! ENJOY!
