Grilled Boneless Chicken Thighs

The meat on a boneless, skinless chicken thigh is thin and cooking time is quick, yet the thigh still retains some fat and remains moist and flavorful. Season grilled boneless chicken thighs with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil – simple and delicious.

Or, marinate with a store-bought or home-made marinade and try to marinate for at least 4 hours for better flavor. There are a bazillion (ok, maybe not that many, but a lot) of dry rubs, which don’t need more that 15 minutes sitting time, that pack in lots of flavor.

Make some grilled corn on the cob, too!

I love grilled boneless chicken thighs in sandwiches. Choose a nice bun or good bread and use your favorite condiment(s), pile on the lettuce and tomatoes and a few slices of dill pickle. The perfect sandwich!

Here’s another video from our mini grilled chicken series featuring grilled boneless chicken thighs.

When the bone is removed from the thigh, the meat is thin and cooking time is quick. Yet, the thighs retain some fat and remain moist. The flavorful meat is good with only salt and pepper and a little oil to prevent sticking. Also try different marinades and rubs.

Whenever cooking meat or poultry with the bone on, the cooking time takes a little longer. The bone can be in the center or perimeter and location also affects cooking time. Center bones take longer to reach and the meat near the bone is the last to cook because the bone holds the cold longer.

The best alternative on the grill for cooking anything with a bone is to start with direct heat and then move to the other side of the grill and finish on indirect heat. This keeps the outer meat moist and slowly lets the heat permeate throughout.

Chicken thighs have more fat than the breast, so if you overcook a little, it’s a bit forgiving. Use marinades, rubs or just plain old salt and pepper with a little olive oil. Use a favorite marinade or rub at least 30 minutes, preferably a few hours before cooking.

Fire up the grill and get started on your grilled bone-in chicken thighs tonight!

Try some of these sides to go along with your chicken: macaroni salad, or vinegar coleslaw.
