Cranberry Chicken Thighs Recipe :


Chicken Thighs
Garlic Powder
Black Pepper
Fresh Cranberries
Fresh Rosemary
Chicken Broth
Balsamic Vinegar


1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake the bacon in a large, oven safe pan until crisp. Set the bacon aside and reserve the bacon fat in the pan.
2. In a small bowl, mix the thyme, garlic powder, salt and pepper together. Sprinkle the mixture all over the chicken thighs.
3. Heat the pan with residual bacon fat over medium high heat on the stove top. Once hot, add the chicken thighs skin side down to the pan. Allow the thighs to sear undisturbed for about 5-7 minutes, or until the skin begins to brown and get crispy.
4. Flip the chicken over and allow them to sear for an additional 3 minutes. Sprinkle the cranberries around the chicken thighs and add the balsamic vinegar and broth. Nestle the sprigs of rosemary around the chicken.
5. Place the chicken in the oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the thighs reach an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees. For more crispy skin, you can broil the thighs for about 30-45 seconds. Chop the reserved bacon and scatter it around the chicken. Serve with your favorite low-carb side.
