I truly do love this recipe, although I'd prefer using just thighs -- timing is so much simpler when they're all the same cut. But why do recipe creators think I'm going to start this aft er dinner, refrigerate it overnight -- tossing occasionally no less -- and then cook in the morning? Let's get into the real world. I will begin marinating in the morning, toss it occasionally during the day, and then cook it in the evening.
