Grape Jelly Chicken Thighs

This is one of my go-to recipes. Its easy to prep the sauce and throw the thighs into the oven right when I get home from work. The chicken is tender, while the sauce is thick and gooey – and almost reminds me of a sweet and sour sauce. I like to serve it over garlic rice. These won’t last long – well, they don’t in my house.
