#freezerlovefriday does grilling season - tangy apple maple chicken

I have had so much fun this month bringing you different marinades. I feel like I have so many more sitting around in my head, so who knows you may see some more variations in the future. I saved one of the best for lasts. This marinade is sweet and when you char the chicken, it makes it so much better. We used thighs for this recipe, but feel free to use whatever type of chicken you like. 

This pairs perfectly with my mac n' cheese (also freezer friendly) and some steamed broccoli! 

Tangy Apple Maple Chicken 
Yields: 4-6 Chicken Breasts/Thighs


1 cup Maple Syrup 
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tbsp apple cider
1 apple cored and peeled
½ t cinnamon
½ t dried thyme 


Mix all of the ingredients together. 
Trim excess fat off of the chicken breasts and place in a large baggie. 
Let sit in refrigerator for one day and freeze laying flat for up to 3 months!

Stay tuned for next month's #freezerlovefriday ingredient of the month! I got the inspiration from a meal that my mom cooked for me while we were home visiting family in Ohio. And trust me it is sure to delight everyone!!

Have a Happy Easter, and wonderful weekend with your family!
