For a smoky spice taste, try Whole Foods Market Tequila Lime Seasoning on boneless skinless chicken thighs. Start by brushing the thighs with canola oil. Next, rub the spice on and into the chicken. You’ll want to use a lot of this seasoning, so crust it over well. Next, marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours to allow the seasoning to properly flavor the chicken.
When ready to grill, set the grill for direct high heat using the 3 second measuring technique. Place the thighs on a well oiled grill grate and cover and grill for 3 minutes. Next, flip the chicken thighs and grill covered for another 3 minutes.Finally, make one last flip and grill covered for 4 minutes.
When you take the chicken thighs off the grill, let them rest for approximately 5 minutes so the juices can re-distribute. Serve with Mexican rice or grilled corn for a delightful, spicy dinner prepared by a Master of the Grill !
Boneless skinless chicken thighs are simple and easy to grill. I like to marinate them in the morning for an evening grill. McCormicks makes a variety of marinades which are a simple and easy way to add great flavor to your meal. One of my favorites is McCormicks Baja Citrus marinade. To this I add 2 cubes each of Dorot‘s frozen cilantro and garlic. If you haven’t tried this, it’s a quick and simple way to add extra flavor to your marinades.
Grilling Time -Set your grill up for direct grilling and high heat , remembering to oil the grate ( see the Basics section of my blog ). When the grill is ready put the chicken thighs on the grill, cover them with the lid and cook them for 3 minutes, flip and cook for another 3 minutes,flip a final time and cook them for another 4 minutes. Pull the thighs from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes. Serve them with a Mexican rice, a salad or your choice of side. This is a simple and easy chicken thighs meal with no flare up that is perfect every time. As always, make notes of any adjustments you make and you will be on your way to being Master of the grill !
