Cooking Time

  • Marinate Time: 2 hours to overnight
  • Cook Time: 14 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours 24 minutes (excluding marinate overnight)

Serving Size

  • Serves 4 people

Ingredients

  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Directions

  1. Prepare the Marinade: In a mixing bowl, whisk together olive oil, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, grated ginger, smoked paprika, and ground black pepper.
  2. Marinate the Chicken: Place chicken thighs in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken, ensuring each piece is well-coated. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results.
  3. Preheat the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

  5. Rest and Serve: Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes after grilling. Serve hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley.
