Grilled Chicken Thighs

Chicken thighs on the grill are so delicious and very forgiving (i.e.  – it’s hard to overcook them).  They cook fast and you can’t mess them up and this recipe is finger lickin’ good!

  • Method: Grill
  • Cuisine: International


  • 2 1/2 lbs (12) boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp ground paprika
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp oregano


  • Preheat grill to medium high – ~400F.
  • Make spice mix:  In a small bowl mix together all dry ingredients.
  • Add chicken to a large bowl and add olive oil.  Toss oil to evenly coat chicken. Add spice mix and toss again to coat.  Sit at room temperature ~ 15 minutes.
  • Grill ~ 5-6 minutes on each side or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165F and juices run clear.  Add sea salt to taste.  Happy Eating!  Beckie


  • Letting meat sit at room temperature prepares it to cook more evenly than if you just put it on the grill or skillet straight from the cold fridge.  People/cooks are different in how long they want certain meats to sit at room temperature.  I am only comfortable with 15 minutes for chicken.  I let beef sit ~ 30 minutes outside the fridge before cooking.
  • Don’t have a grill?  Easy enough – pan fry it instead.

Things In My Kitchen:

  • Weber Grill – I love this grill.  Small but still plenty big enough for 12 chicken thighs and 6-8 steaks.  Plus it’s easy to clean the grates.  You’ll want to grab the stand below probably as well.
  • Weber Grill Portable Stand – Rollable and compacts.
