Grilled Citrus Chicken Thighs

Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 12 mins
Other time 30 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 2 chicken thighs)
Chicken thighs are juicier than breasts due to their slightly higher fat content. Don't fret over the added fat in the poultry; simply pair the thighs with couscous or brown rice and a steamed vegetable for a healthy balance.

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
