These Grilled Chicken Thighs are simple but delicious. This grilled chicken is wonderful served with lemon or lime wedges and garnished with chives or green onion.


  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup barbeque sauce (optional)


  1. Preheat grill using high heat.
  2. Unroll chicken thighs and sprinkle each side evenly with salt.
  3. Arrange chicken thighs on the grill. Cook uncovered until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh registers 165°F, about 6 to 7 minutes per side. If using barbecue sauce, add it for the last couple minutes for each side.
  4. Transfer chicken thighs to a serving plate or platter and serve.

You can substitute bone-in thighs. Modify the cooking time to 10 – 12 minute per side or until an instant read thermometer registers 165˚F when inserted in the thickest part of the thigh.
