Last summer we made these Honey-Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs, which turned out quite delicious.
I prefer cooking with 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.
While I am no expert at grilling, I found this recipe very easy to do. Simply prepare your grill for cooking, and when it is ready, cook the chicken thighs covered for 8-15 minutes, turning once and brushing with the yummy honey glaze while they finish cooking.
Use Digital Meat Thermometer to Check Chicken
One cooking gadget I’ve found very helpful in knowing 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 180 degrees.
