Maple Dijon Grilled Chicken

I love grilling boneless skinless chicken thighs because they don’t get dried out like chicken breast often does and they are much faster to cook than bone-in thighs. These have a great flavor and can be paired with a variety of veggies on the side. We had these thighs with a simple salad topped with berries, feta and toasted pepitas.

Ingredients

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 20 minutes (+time to marinate if you choose)

  • 1-1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard

  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos or low sodium soy sauce

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped

Directions

Preheat grill over medium heat.

In a small bowl combine maple syrup, dijon, coconut aminos, garlic and thyme and stir well.

Poke holes in your chicken thighs with a fork. Place in a bag and pour marinade over top, reserving a few tbsp to brush on chicken while it’s grilling. Seal and shake the bag until evenly coated. You can place the bag in the refrigerator to marinate for 30+ minutes if you want or you can grill immediately.

Place chicken on preheated grill and grill for 6-7 minutes on each side, brushing reserved marinade on it occasionally.

Once chicken is cooked through (internal temp should read 165 degrees), remove from the grill and enjoy!
