Ingredients

  • 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
  • tsp salt
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 chicken boneless skinless chicken thighs

Instructions

  • 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.
