Cranberry Balsamic Chicken
This crazy delicious cranberry and balsamic glaze recipe is perfect for perking up the chicken thighs!
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup fresh cranberries
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 6 springs rosemary
- 2 tsp thyme leaves
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- zest of 1 orange
Preheat oven to 325°. In a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Add chicken skin-side down and cook until the skin is golden and crispy about 4 minutes. Remove chicken from heat and place on a plate, skin-side-up.
Melt butter in the same skillet then add cranberries, vinegar, garlic, brown sugar, and orange zest. Return chicken to skillet and scatter herbs all around. Simmer until the liquid begins to thicken and the cranberries start to soften 5 to 10 minutes.
Transfer to oven and cook until the chicken thighs are cooked through, 18 to 25 minutes more.
