Skill level: Beginner
This sweet, tangy marinade and glaze will coat a family pack of chicken thighs, which is perfect for casual get-togethers. Universally appealing, it can be used on any cut of salmon, chicken or pork that you like.
Whisk ReaLemon® Flavour Infusions - Garlic with maple syrup, mustard, olive oil, soy sauce, thyme and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper.
Combine marinade with chicken thighs in a shallow dish; turning to coat. Marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat grill to medium and grease grates well. Remove chicken from marinade to a tray (reserve marinade). Pour marinade into a saucepan set over medium heat; bring to a boil and simmer for 8 minutes or until thickened (reduced to about 1/2 cup/125 mL).
Season chicken with remaining salt and pepper. Grill chicken for 8 minutes, turning once. Continue to grill for 4 to 6 minutes, turning and basting liberally with sauce until well glazed.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
- To prepare indoors, preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Insert a rack into a rimmed baking sheet that has been lined with parchment or foil. Roast chicken for 30 minutes, basting with reserved marinade often during the last 10 minutes.
- Chicken thighs can be combined with marinade in a zip top freezer bag and frozen; thaw overnight in refrigerator before cooking.
