Tacos that came out right, I covered the Pyrex with foil and let them bake at 325° for 30 minutes, this made the thighs give up a lot of gelatin, then I flipped them and turned the temperature to 500° for the remaining time, uncovered, to reduce the gelatin and intensify the flavor. Once cooled, deboned and shredded, I added the cilantro and chopped onions and 2 extra teaspoons of at the end for that burst of brightness, man were they good If you don't like cilantro omit and squeeze fresh lime juice over the shredded chicken. FINALLY, not chewy, overcooked or mushy, JUST PLAIN GOOD! !
