Tender and juicy grilled chicken thighs with a perfect balance of sweet and tart. The carrots and cabbage are optional but it's a great way to utilize the apple cider marinade and have a complete meal.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove chicken from the refrigerator.

  • 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.

  • 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! Read More

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. Read More
