5 tbsps rapeseed oil
1 small red onion, coarsely chopped
1.1L tangerine juice or tangerine-orange juice, not from concentrate
4 sprigs fresh thyme
1 tangerine or orange, zested
65ml pure maple syrup
1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning
8 chicken drumsticks
8 bone-in chicken thighs
2 spring onions, thinly sliced, for garnish
Grilled oranges and tangerines, for garnish
1) Heat the griddle to medium-high.

2) Heat 2 tbsps of the oil in a medium saucepan over high heat, add the onion and cook until soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the juice and thyme, bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and reduced to approximately 125ml, 20 to 25 minutes.

3) Strain the mixture into a bowl and whisk in the syrup, soy sauce and black pepper and let cool to room temperature. Can be made 2 days in advance and brought to room temperature before using.

4) Brush chicken on both sides with the remaining oil and season with salt and pepper.

5) Griddle until golden brown on both sides and just cooked through. Begin brushing with the glaze during the last 5 minutes of griddling.

6) To serve, remove to a platter and sprinkle with the green onion. Garnish with griddled citrus.
