For the chicken

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of any large pieces of fat
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the rub

For the glaze


  • Prepare your grill for direct and indirect cooking.
  • Place the chicken into a large bowl and drizzle with the oil. Toss to coat.
  • Combine the rub ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the chicken, tossing as you go.
  • Grill chicken over direct heat 2-3 minutes per side just long enough to get grill marks and a little color. Remove to indirect heat and cool until internal temperature reaches 155 F.
  • Microwave the honey in a bowl or cup for 20 seconds. Stir in the vinegar.
  • Reserve 2 tablespoons of the glaze. Brush remaining glaze (you may not need all of it), over the chicken as it cooks to completion, 165 F internally.
  • Serve chicken drizzled with reserved glaze.
