A lime-tarragon marinade for juicy flavorful chicken pieces - moist and delicious. I like to marinate the pieces and cook them on the grill for a nice summer meal.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • ½ cup fresh lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion

  • 2 teaspoons dried tarragon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon hot sauce

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs

Directions

  1. Place olive oil, lime juice, onion, tarragon, salt, and hot sauce into a large, resealable plastic bag; shake to mix. Add chicken thighs, coat with marinade, squeeze out air, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate. Remove chicken from marinade, and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Grill chicken for about 30 minutes, or until no longer pink in the center. Chicken thighs don't dry out easily, so don't be afraid to cook them a bit longer if needed.
