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!).
