I love this easy marinade for these grilled chicken thighs. The thighs are so juicy, tender and flavorful. They will become a favorite to grill whenever you are in the mood for grilled meat.

We have four seasons where we live (our beautiful Ohio). One of the best things that we look forward to once winter is almost over is grilling foods. Oh how we love to get our grill and get it cleaned and ready for use for the season. We love burgers (cause who doesn’t? is that even a question.) chicken shish kebabs, or even grilled corn on the cob.  Also, if any of you have no yet tried our chicken fettucine Alfredo that has grilled chicken in it, you are totally missing out!

When making these chicken thighs, we usually enjoy them with mashed potatoes, an easy salad and homemade bread (because homemade bread is the best kind of bread and it makes every meal so much more meaningful). You will then want to top it off with an easy no-bake vanilla wafers dessert.

When cutting the thighs, if it’s a large thigh cut it into three (or four), otherwise cut the thighs in half. You don’t want the pieces to be too small and require skewers but you don’t want them too large.

Those of you that enjoy a little kick to your food, try adding some Red Hot sauce or Sriracha to the marinade (1 -2 tsp, depending on how hot you want it).
