Roasted Chicken for Lunch

I roasted chicken thighs for lunch today. I marinated the thighs in calamansi, soysauce, crushed garlic, ground black pepper, sugar and sprite overnight in the refrigerator. I was planning to grill it outside. But when I woke up, it was raining, not drizzling, but really raining...gone are my blue skies yet again. What to do? I had an idea to cook it using the turbo-broiler. Had them grill the chicken thighs 20 minutes on each side (total of 40 minutes) then i thickened the marinade with cornstarch dissolved in cold water, and cooked it. Drizzled it over the chicken thighs....hmmm not bad.

The thighs are still juicy and the 12-hour marinating time did its job efficiently. Yummy!!
