These Carolina-style barbecue chicken thighs are smothered with a tangy-sweet sauce that will please the whole family.
Prep: 3 minutes; Cook: 6 minutes
1/2 cup prepared mustard
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
8 (3-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken thighs
How to Make It
Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well. Reserve and set aside 1/4 cup sauce mixture.
Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Brush half of remaining 1/2 cup sauce mixture over one side of chicken. Grill chicken 3 to 4 minutes. Turn chicken over; brush with remaining half of sauce mixture. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until done. Place chicken on a serving platter; drizzle with reserved 1/4 cup sauce mixture.
This recipe is just awesome, especially considering how easy it is. I used thighs for a change of pace, but I think chicken breasts would also be great. Served with Warm Potato Salad for a great combo.
I loved the taste of this sauce. I grilled the chicken with a little salt and pepper and added the sauce in the final minutes of cooking. I made boneless chicken breasts and drumsticks. I preferred the flavor with the dark meat better.
Hubby and I both love this recipe, and I love how easy it comes together. One bit of advice, though: I do most of my grilling on an indoor grill over the stove, and have found that this works better to grill the chicken first and then either use the sauce as a dipping sauce, or just top the cooked chicken with it. If made as directed on an indoor grill, you'll spend a lot of time scrubbing burned sauce off your grill pan!
YUM!! I used boneless skinless breasts and instead of brown sugar, I used brown sugar splenda. I grilled this on my new grill pan and it was terrific. It tasted good hot or cold. I served this with the warm balsamic potato salad, also from this site. I actually got this recipe from the cookbook, but wanted to come here and review it. Two excellent recipes from the book from two I tried. I can't wait to try more!
Fantastic! I cheated however. I used pre-cooked grilled chicken breast strips, sliced them into bite sz pcs and cooked this on the stove top. I served it w/jasmine rice and a Normandy Blend of steamed veggies. EXCELLENT! It's a keeper for sure.
Super simple, super quick and lots of flavor. I chose this recipe because it was getting late and it was extremely easy to prep. I used a generic spicy brown mustard, let the chicken sit in the mixture for a wee bit and threw it on the grill. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
