Do this first step the night before or early in the morning, so your chicken has enough time to marinate.

Clean your chicken thighs; you can remove or keep the skin, as you prefer.

Place in a large casserole, season with plenty of salt and pepper. Then add the rosemary and thyme.

Drizzle a generous amount of Belmorso Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Silver Balsamic Vinegar.

Turn the thighs so that each side gets dipped into the balsamic grilled chicken marinade.

Peel and cut two garlic cloves into half and add them together with 2 bay leaves at the bottom of the marinade.

Cover with a lid, or some plastic wrap. You can even put the chicken and marinade into a large ziploc bag. Leave to marinade in the fridge for at least 3 hours. Every 1 to 2 hours take a spoon and add the marinade with a spoon on top of the thighs. If you are using a bag, just shake it carefully.

The rest of the recipe is fairly simple.
