Cranberry Sage Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs
We eat a lot of chicken. So it goes without saying that I have a REALLY large repertoire of chicken recipes. We have our favorites of course, everyone does but if I served the same ones week in and week out I’d probably end up with a mutiny on my hands (ain’t nobody got time for that). This was one of my “clean out the refrigerator” ideas for chicken. Sometimes they work out. Sometimes they don’t.
Obviously if its making it to our corner of the web here Mikey (aka the family) liked it. Woot. Glazes are a great way to go with chicken. Making a glaze is super easy. You take a liquid and reduce it. My soon to be eight year old could do this, he calls it sauce and I just don’t have the heart to correct him, being the baby and all, and well let’s be honest he’s cute. Real cute (for the record, and just in case they might read this – my other two children are equally adorable.)
I like to keep a few packages of chicken thighs and wings on hand in our freezer (back to that whole we eat a lot of chicken thing). Grilled meat kinda calls out for glaze. Maybe it’s the G in common. I’m not sure but it just works.
For this glaze we paired cranberry and sage which just screams fall to me. Is anyone else excited about fall? I’m trying to hurry it along but like my children it’s not cooperating. I’m looking forward to the cooler temperatures. Not COLD just cool. I’m not ready for cold. No. No. No.
I’m a dark meat girl. Always have been and I’m pretty sure I will always be. For this recipe we used Tyson® Fresh Chicken Thighs (bone in baby). Did you know that Tyson Fresh Chicken is all natural* with no added hormones or steroids**? Yep. It arrives at your store fresh, delivered within days from leaving the farm. How’s that for fresh?
Tyson has a heritage of producing chicken raised by family farmers for over 75 years. Each piece of chicken is hand trimmed for convenience to save time and effort. That is extra bonus points in my book. Want to learn more? You can find helpful tools and resources to make meal planning easy for you and your family on their website.
