  1. Whisk apple cider, mustard, dill, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Add chicken thighs and stir until evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove chicken from the refrigerator.
  3. Transfer chicken to a plate and pour marinade into a large skillet. Add carrots and cabbage and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, cover, and cook until carrots have softened, about 30 minutes.
  4. While carrots and cabbage are cooking, place chicken thighs on the preheated grill and cook until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through the cook time. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a serving plate and let rest for 5 minutes. Serve with carrots and cabbage.

To Jenny Lynn, there is no vinegar in this recipe! Apple cider is what gives this dish its sweetness (NOT apple cider vinegar). Very tasty!

Just a question. It says a perfect balance of sweet and tart, but there is no sugar in the recipe. Is that right? The chicken was tender, but the only flavor coming through was vinegar.
