Cider Ginger Grilled Chicken

Author: Marlynn Schotland, Urban Bliss Life


  • 6 chicken thighs
  • 1 bottle 12 oz hard cider
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 Tablespoon minced ginger
  • Lime juice from sliced limes
  • salt and pepper


  • In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients for the marinade, from the cider to the minced ginger.
  • Add the chicken thighs and refrigerate for at least one hour (up to 6 hours).
  • Over a hot grill, grill chicken about 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Lower heat to medium and baste each piece of chicken with the marinade. Continue grilling for about 15-20 minutes. The juices should run clear when you gently pierce the meat.
  • Squeeze some fresh lime juice from sliced limes over each piece of chicken, then sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Transfer to a warm plate and serve immediately, alongside your favorite sides and cider.
