I have made citrus chicken countless times and this recipe never disappoints, it turns out perfect EVERY TIME. Very tangy, juicy and sweet, you just have to try it out…
750g chicken thighs
1 tablespoon Foodace grill seasoning ( or any grill seasoning of choice)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoon infused olive oil
Pinch of nutmeg
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Preheat oven, gas 180 degrees Celsius.
Place chicken in a bowl, add all ingredients except for the maple syrup and clementines; massage on the thighs. Set aside.
Place a griddle pan on high heat, once heated, place the thighs skin down and grill for about 4 minutes or until you achieve grill lines on the chicken skin.
Transfer on to a baking pan (just as seen in picture below) or if the grill pan is oven proof, leave them on there.
Squeeze clementines into a small bowl, add the maple syrup, mix well and pour over the semi grilled thighs. Add extras like onion, thyme, carrots: as you wish…
Cover with foil, place in the oven, reduce oven heat to 120 degrees and allow chicken to slowly cook and soak up the clementine juice for 45 minutes.
