It's not every day I cook with cider. In fact it's not every day I drink cider, the last occasion was probably back in the 1980s long before the drink's inexplicable rise to popularity due to extensive marketing campaigns. With some chicken thigh fillets in the fridge requiring eating I thought I'd give the BBC Good Food magazine February 2014 issue a spin.

I was pleasantly surprised by the results. When served with the broccoli and some rice which provided the balance in the dish it confirmed that it would be worth making on other occasions.

Changes from Published Recipe

I used a well trodden technique I employ for many BBC Good Food recipes - I created the base sauce as per the printed recipe but scaled down the primary ingredients to suit my own circumstances. So I added two small thighs and one onion. This provided more than sufficient sauce (obviously) and a decent sized portion just for myself.

Apart from those changes, the recipe was per the magazine.
