  1. In a large bowl, mix the cider vinegar, vegetable oil, egg, salt, and poultry seasoning. Place the chicken thighs in the bowl, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Arrange the chicken thighs in a baking dish, and cover with about 1/4 of the marinade mixture.
  4. Bake chicken 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Drain off the marinade so that the chicken skin will become crisp (a baster works well for extracting the marinade). Continue baking 15 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

Turned out very good! I substituted red wine vinegar and olive oil because that's what I had on hand. Served it on rice and my husband loved it!

I recommend that you only do half of the cider vinegar and half italian dressing and keep the rest the same. It still has a tang to it. If I used all cider vinegar I think it would have been too...

This is the best, always leave in it marinade ALL day, better flavor. We use it on drumsticks all the time (kid friendly)!
