Fire up the grill for an unforgettable feast with our Grilled Chicken recipe. Juicy, tender chicken thighs infused with a delightful blend of seasonings, bringing a burst of flavor to your plate.
Start by preparing your chicken thighs. You can use bone-in, skinless chicken thighs or remove the skin from regular ones. Trim any excess fat. Using a sharp knife, trim any excess fat and skin from the chicken thighs to your preference. You can leave a little fat for added flavor.
In a large zip-top bag, combine the olive oil, smashed garlic cloves, finely chopped parsley, paprika, black pepper, and salt. Mix the ingredients well in the bag.
Place the chicken thighs into the bag with the marinade. Seal the bag and massage the marinade over the chicken, ensuring each piece is well coated. Remove as much air as possible from the bag, then seal it.
Allow the chicken to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. For best results, marinate for 4 hours or even overnight if possible.
Preheat your grill to a medium-high temperature, approximately 375°F. You can adjust the temperature by controlling the grill's vents.
Once the grill is hot, remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off any excess. Place the chicken thighs on the grill over direct heat. You can adjust the heat by moving the chicken to different zones of your grill. Grill for about 5-7 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Using a meat thermometer is recommended to ensure they're cooked to perfection.
Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. When it reaches 165°F, the chicken is done.
Once done, remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Serve your perfectly grilled chicken thighs and enjoy the delicious flavor and smoky aroma!
