Thigh just got lucky
Well after shucking the skin and bones off of about 5 lbs of chicken thighs the old lady picked up yesterday.
I went to the cupboard for the trusty jamaican jerk marinade and nowhere to be found. After 10 minutes of back and forth i decided to give it my own spin and it turned out pretty good but not so jamaican. The whole time it marinaded it smelled like teriyaki chicken but had a great juicy taste of its own.
Anyone have any good marinades to recommend?
Heres how it went
8 tblsp kikkomon soy sauce
6 tblsp EVOO
3 tblsp white vinegar
1 tblsp sea salt
2 tblsp coarse ground pepper
2 tblsp cayenne pepper (love a bit of heat)(marinaded so not that bad)
1 clove garlic minced
5 small chives minced as well
mixed this all up with water enough to cover and refrigerated for 3 hours then grilled
It came out just the right darkness and juicy as can be.
Would love to here back on other chicken thighs cuz they are highly overlooked
I am definitely a thigh man
I would like to see someone genetically alter a chicken to have all thigh meat. It really doesn't get any better than thigh meat.
Some people know the cost of everything but the value of nothing.
White meat cooks faster than dark meat, so everything dries out sooner than the thigh.
I will grill a couple dozen Thighs on my BGE and take to our church Pot Luck. People go nuts over it!
I'd like to try the "Jerk" style sometime.
