Spice & EZ Orange & Soy Marinated Chicken Thighs
Grilled chicken thighs are great with one of our Spice & EZ Dry rubs, but they are even more juicy and delicious if you have time to marinate them before applying the heat. This is a simple soy and orange marinade that can be thrown together quickly. For best results, marinate them overnight.
- 1 pound chicken thighs, with skin
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
- 2 tablespoons Spice & EZ Dry Rub Seasoning
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
Mix all of the marinade ingredients together and pour into a resealable bag. Place the chicken thighs in the marinade bag, squeeze out all of the air as you close the bag.
Place in the refrigerator and marinate the chicken thighs for at least 8 hours, preferably overnight.
Heat the grill to medium heat, around 400 - 450 degrees.
Remove the chicken thighs from the marinade and place skin side up on the grill once heated.
Grill with the lid closed until a meat thermometer reaches 165 degrees, but make sure you aren't touching the bone with the thermometer.
Flip the thighs over skin side down when they are almost done to crisp up the skin (the best part!).
