For the chicken:


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 2

Place all ingredients for the marinade in the bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth.

Step 3

Place chicken thighs in a sturdy plastic bag and add marinade. Squeeze air from bag and seal. Massage marinade into chicken. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Step 4

In a small bowl, whisk together the apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon lime juice, and garlic clove, to create a glaze. Set aside until ready to use.

Step 5

Remove chicken from the marinade and gently pat dry with a paper towel. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, keeping at least an inch between each thigh. Season with additional salt and pepper.

Step 6

Bake chicken in the oven for 20 minutes. Check thighs at thickest part with an instant-read thermometer and when the temperature reaches 160 degrees F, turn broiler to high and drizzle chicken with honey-apple cider vinegar glaze. Broil tops of thighs for two to three minutes. Serve it with the grain of your choice and fresh crudités like sugar snap peas and carrots.
