Cider-Glazed Chicken Thighs

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

This recipe couldn’t be simpler: Just roast the chicken until cooked through, brush with a three-ingredient glaze, and broil until golden-brown. Roasted sweet potato and onion wedges make a nice accompaniment.

Ingredients

  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, trimmed
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup apple cider
  • 1 Tbs. honey
  • 1-1/2 Tbs. cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

Preparation

  • Position a rack 6 inches from the broiler and heat the oven to 450°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  • In a large bowl, toss the chicken thighs with the oil, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Put a rack on the baking sheet and arrange the chicken thighs skin side up on the rack. Roast until the thighs are lightly golden and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part without touching the bone registers 165°F, about 20 minutes
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring the cider and honey to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer vigorously until the mixture has reduced to 1/2 cup, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter.
  • Turn the broiler to high, brush the chicken thighs with the cider glaze, and broil for 1 minute. Brush with more glaze and broil again until deep golden-brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the chicken from the oven, brush with more of the glaze, and serve.

    This was good but not amazing. I would make again for a quick weeknight meal but probably not anytime soon as there are so many other great chicken recipes on Fine Cooking.

    This is an easy and quick main dish to make, and it just looks beautiful on top when it's done! I've made the dish multiple times and it usually takes 35 minutes to cook the chicken to 165 degrees, NOT 20 minutes.
