- To get started: Melt some butter in a large skillet set over medium heat. Season the chicken thighs generously with crushed black pepper and Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning Shaker.
- When the butter is foaming, add the chicken thighs skin side down and cook without disturbing until the skin is golden brown. Turn the chicken over and pour in enough apple cider to come about ¼-inch up the sides of the pan.
- Transfer to a 375-degree oven and roast until the chicken is cooked through, another 20-25 minutes or so. While the chicken is cooking, baste with the cider every so often.
- Remove the whole pan from the oven and take the chicken out of the sauce. Whisk in a little Dijon mustard to cut the sweetness, add another pat of butter, and season to taste with salt and pepper, if needed. Pour over the chicken and serve hot.
