Barbeque Boneless Chicken Thighs--Quick and Easy on the Grill

   You can have delicious, tender barbeque chicken in a hurry! Just choose boneless, skinless chicken thighs and cook them up on the grill. I have always thought I needed to cook chicken low and slow after a long marinade or brining. But I wanted to make these up quickly so I tried this and it turned out fantastic!!
Do trim excess fat, skin off and make sure the pieces are uniform-ish in thickness. My favorite store bought sauce is Sweet Ray's honey BBQ.

                                   quick and easy on the grill

Boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
Generous  sprinkle of Salt, pepper, smoked paprika, onion powder, smoky BBQ spice blend
Drizzle of olive oil
Favorite BBQ sauce

Rub spice mixture onto chicken.

Lightly drizzle with oil.

Heat grill to medium high.

Place chicken thighs onto grill and reduce heat to medium.

Grill chicken for 5 -7 minutes or so, until chicken starts to brown and get grill marks. Flip and cook a few more minutes until almost done but not quite cooked through.

 Place in a bowl or dish and add favorite bottled or home-made barbeque sauce and coat each piece. Return to grill for about 4 or 5 minutes to caramelize sauce lightly and internal temp reaches 165 degrees

Let chicken rest a few minutes or place in a 200 degree oven to hold until everything is ready.
