Honey-Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs are a perfect choice for summer grilling. Very easy and quick to make for a weeknight dinner. They are tender and delicious, with a light honey sweetness and a little tang from the soy sauce. 

When possible, I prefer cooking with boneless, skinless chicken thighs over chicken breasts as they are so juicy, tender, and flavorful. I always look for specials at the grocery store and try to buy in bulk when they are on sale, freezing the extra for later use.

Use a Digital Meat Thermometer

Digital Meat Thermometer

One cooking gadget I’ve found very helpful to gauge when your meat has cooked long enough while grilling is a Digital Meat Thermometer.

Insert the prong through the thickest portion of your meat, sideways rather than straight down, to get the most accurate temperature reading. For this recipe, cook the chicken until juices run clear to about 175-180 degrees.
