This chicken thigh recipe was simple and delicious! Chicken is very tender. I had meant to put the jalapeno in the sauce but forgot to do so and the sauce was just as yummy! I actually used 1/2 parsley and 1/2 cilantro.
I really loved the ease of making this. Even though I used boneless chicken thighs the marinade made them taste so flavorful. I made the chili-herb sauce which my husband wasn't going to try at first, but after one bite he helped eat it all up! I served it with the Grilled Sweet Potato and Bell Pepper Toss from Cooking Light. Very good and I'll make it again!
I used chicken breasts and it worked fine. I also always substitute honey for sugar and it works great. My family loved this recipe, even my fussy anti-spice eater. My husband said the chicken was great on it's own or with the topping.
Full Disclosure: I didn't make the Chile-Herb Sauce, though it does sound delicious. The chicken, however, was delicious on its own! I marinated it overnight for ultimate flavor and ease and it cooked up perfectly. I used boneless skinless thighs, so they cooked in no time and everyone at the BBQ we served them at had good things to say!
We used boneless thighs - the chile-herb sauce is delicious.
What a simple yet flavorful summer chicken dish. The parsley sauce is so fresh tasting and thighs are so moist when cooked 8-9 min on each side!
We really enjoyed this recipe. I did sub 1 cup of cilantro for one of the cups of parsley. Different from your usual grilled chicken. Plan on using the leftover chicken and sauce on tostadas later in the week. Will definitely make again!
This chicken was great, I just didn't like the sauce. To much parsley.
