Somewhere along the way in my culinary life, I acquired some chicken recipes. The top of the recipe page says Broiled and Barbecued, however, I’m not sure if that’s the book’s name or the section of the cookbook. I do know that this particular recipe was exceptionally good, especially for the fall.
The recipe is a marinade made with apple cider, cider vinegar, scallions, honey, and steak sauce to name some of ingredients that might not be in your pantry. It takes approximately 25 minutes to prepare the marinade and a minimum of one hour for the chicken to marinate.
I started the marinade early in the morning, without the scallions and steak sauce. I was passing a food store on the way home of the gym, so I had plenty of time to put the missing ingredients in the liquid to infuse their flavors.
I had my husband start the cooking on the grill before I got home from work, I instructed him to cook the chicken on aluminum foil to prevent the exterior from browning too fast before the center of the chicken had time to cook. I would also suggest saving the marinade to brush on the chicken while it cooks, which will help keep the chicken moist and impart more flavor in the meat.
We hadn’t had this recipe in a while and it turned out great. You could taste the subtleness of the apple cider mixed with the light licorice taste of the tarragon. Here’s another great recipe cooking with the flavors of the fall.
