The best part about these Barbecue Chicken Thighs is that it’s just as good as leftovers as it is hot off the grill, so we always make enough for at least two meals. My family loves to barbecue even when it’s freezing out, but you could always cook this chicken under the broiler or on an indoor grill. The seasoning mix gives this recipe a nutritional boost and is inspired by a recipe in Alton Brown’s I’m Just Here for the Food: Version 2.0. My toddler actually loves this chicken and will easily eat an entire thigh by herself.
Barbecue Chicken Thighs
- Preheat the grill on high for seven minutes and clean the grates if necessary.
- Mix spices in a bowl. Toss with chicken and rub around with your hands to thoroughly coat. (Don’t forget to wash well afterward)!
- Place on a hot grill. Cook on medium heat with the lid closed approximately 10 minutes on the first side. Flip and and cook 8 minutes with the lid closed on the second side, or until completely cooked (165 degrees). You may have to adjust your cooking time depending on the heat of your barbecue.
