We’re always looking for an easy dinner, and we’re often looking for a new way to jazz up chicken. ¬†This new recipe for Cirtus Marinated Chicken Thighs is that new jazzy technique.

Ingredients:

6 boneless skinless chicken thighs

1/4 cup of oil
1/2 cup of soy sauce 
Juice and zest of 1 orange
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
Juice and zest of 1 lime
4 grated cloves of garlic (use jarred if you want)

1 small shallot, minced.
1 scallion, sliced on the bias

1. Add oil, soy sauce, garlic, and all citrus juice and zest into a ziplock bag and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

2. Remove chicken from marinade and place on foil-lined sheet pan. Reserve marinade.

3. Place in pre-heated 400 degree oven and bake for about 15 minutes, then under the broiler (500 degrees) for 3 mins. (Cook times mar vary: Cook chicken until internal temp is 160 and juice run clear)

4. Pour the remaining marinade (in the ziplock Bag) and shallot into a small pot and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes, then reduce to medium heat and cook another 6 minutes until thickened and reduced. This high heat cooking will enable you to use the marinade as a sauce–boiling it raised the temp. to above 160 degrees since raw chicken was present in the marinade pre-cooking.

Remove chicken from oven, place chicken on a platter, pour sauce over chicken, and garnish with sliced scallion. Delicious!!
