Cranberry Sage Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs post is sponsored by Tyson. I was compensated for my time. Opinions are my own.
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 that would be boring right. This was one of my “clean out the refrigerator” ideas for chicken. Sometimes they work out. Sometimes they don’t.
Glazes are a great way to go with chicken. Making a glaze is super easy. You take a liquid and reduce it.
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.
DO I USE BONE IN CHICKEN OR BONELESS?
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.
* Minimally processed. No artificial ingredients.
**Federal regulations prohibit the use of added hormones or steroids in chicken.
