- 1 onion
- 4 garlic cloves
- 2 cups apple cider
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 6 sprigs fresh thyme
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 8 chicken boneless skinless chicken thighs
Peel the onion and garlic, then roughly chop them and add them to a large ziplock bag (or tupperware).
Add in the apple cider, olive oil, fresh thyme, apple cider vinegar, mustard, salt, sugar and black pepper.
Smoosh everything together until well combined and then add in the chicken thighs.
Carefully turn the ziplock bag over so the chicken is well coated and then place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 4 hours (up to 24 hours).
Preheat the grill or griddle pan. Cook the chicken over a medium high heat for 8 minutes until you have a nice charred crust. Flip the chicken and cook for a further 8 minutes.
Check the chicken is cooked through and then serve with a garnish of fresh time and some slices of lemon.
