Grilled Chicken Thighs with Lemon-Mustard Marinade

Serves 4

The thighs are my favorite part of the chicken and this recipe was created with that in mind. However, the marinade is equally delicious with bone-in breasts, wings or legs. Simply adjust the cooking time as needed. Serve on a busy weeknight or, since the chicken is good hot, warm, room temperature or chilled, it is perfect for a picnic or potluck event. The recipe can be made in any amount, so it is a quick and easy crowd pleaser.


Place the chicken in a baking dish in one layer. Mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. Spread over the chicken on both sides. Cover with plastic wrap and let it marinate for 30 minutes. (If you keep it longer, which is okay but not necessary, refrigerate.) Heat grill to high. Discard the marinade. Grill the chicken over indirect-medium heat, turning occasionally, until done, about 40 minutes depending on size, or until the juices run clear. Serve hot, room temperature or chilled.

Notes: If desired, the skin can be removed before marinating. The chicken will still be very good.
