  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Combine the flour, salt and paprika in a large plastic bag. Sprinkle lime juice over the chicken thighs, then place them in the bag. Shake pieces around until completely coated.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook just until browned on each side. Transfer to a baking dish. Mix together the brown sugar and lime zest; sprinkle over the chicken. Pour the chicken broth and white wine into the pan. Sprinkle mint over the top.
  4. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes in the preheated oven. Chicken should be cooked through and juices will run clear.

Would not make again - mint makes it interesting but in a distracting way. Would make the KEY WEST chicken on the website over this.

I was not expecting much from this dish but I was very pleased with how it turned out! The sweetness was nice and cut through by the lime, and the breading and baking techniques kept the chicken...

Made this pretty much as described, though I only had an orange and used that instead! Also put a tiny bit of ginger into the flour/paprika mix (which I made with gluten-free flour, being celiac...

My Family loved this. The chicken thighs were so tender and flavorful. I followed the instructions perfectly and they were wonderful!
