Chicken breasts, white meat, is fine for a salad, or chicken tenders. But the really flavorful part of the bird is the dark meat, the thighs and legs. Below is my recipe for juicy, tender and tasty BBQ chicken thighs.
When it comes to BBQ sauce, I haven't come up with a recipe I like more than what I can get in the store. For this recipe I use Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory and Brown Sugar sauce. You can use whatever sauce you like. As for Italian Dressing, I haven't found one that blows the others out of the water, so I go with the house brand from Safeway.
Marinate - 4 hours, Cook - 1 hour
What you'll need (serves 2) -
- 4 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on
- Italian Dressing
- 1/3 cup chili powder
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons onion powder
- 2 tablespoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon jalepeno powder
- BBQ Sauce
Check your temperature again, if they're at 170 pull them off the grill to rest a bit before serving.
