Apple Thyme Chicken
Apples and chicken may seem like an unusual combination, but they make a wonderful meal when grilled to perfection. The thyme marinade gives a boost of flavor and tenderizes the chicken nicely. From Peter Halferty: Corpus Christi, Texas. Recipe published in Light & Tasty August/September 2002.
Marinate: 2 Hours
- 6 tablespoon(s) apple juice
- 6 tablespoon(s) lemon juice
- 4 1/2 teaspoon(s) cider vingar
