Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place lemon zest and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a large zip-top bag; reserve remaining lemon juice for another use. Add olive oil, garlic, parsley, and salt. Add chicken thighs, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator, 1 hour to overnight

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade.

  • Place chicken on the preheated grill and cook, turning once, until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 8 to 9 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from the grill and allow to rest 10 minutes before serving.

Followed the recipe as written, the only difference was I used boneless chicken thighs as that is what I had.They did not disappoint, I baked them in the oven and they took 25 min. at 425 degrees. They were very tasty and moist, and I will make them again. Thank you for another great way to make chicken thighs. Read More
