Chicken tastes great on the grill and better even when it is marinated. The length of grilling time will vary by the thickness of your meat. Thick breasts will take up to 10 minutes per side on medium direct heat. These boneless, skinless thighs were done in 14 minutes – 7 minutes per side on medium direct heat.
This marinade is easy to make and can double as a salad dressing! Go ahead and plan ahead because you want the chicken to marinade for at least 30 minutes.
Here is what you will need for this:
6 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon crushed oregano leaves
Salt & Pepper
Whisk together the oil, vinegar, sugar and oregano leaves.
Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Generously season it with salt and pepper. Place it in a container and pour the marinade over it. Make sure it is all covered by moving the chicken around. Cover and refrigerate.
Heat the grill on high for 20 minutes. Reduce it to medium heat. Clean the grids and oil them with a wad of paper towel soaked in olive oil. Remove the chicken from the marinade – discard marinade. Place the chicken thighs on the grill and cook for 7 minutes.
Flip and cook for an extra 7 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
