Begin prepping your chicken by thawing it if frozen, removing any extra skin and remaining feathers. Place into a large mixing bowl.
Drizzle your chicken with olive oil, then toss with salt sisters seasoning blend, and rosemary garlic seasoning blend. Toss your chicken until it is completely coated in your seasoning mixture. Cover and place the chicken back into the refrigerator and allow it to marinade.
The amount of time it takes for your chicken to marinade can vary. We recommend letting it marinate for at least two hours, or overnight. After your chicken has had sufficient time to absorb the seasonings, it is time to grill your chicken.
Before placing your chicken on the grill, make sure your grill is clean, and then you can begin to preheat your grill. Allow it to warm up before adding your chicken.
No matter what kind of grill you are using, it is key to cook your chicken over indirect heat as much as possible for this chicken to turn out amazing. For a gas grill, you can turn one burner off, and allow the other one to stay at medium heat. Place your chicken over the burner that is off, so that your chicken will cook from the heat that is not directly under it.
The same concept applies if you are using charcoal or pellet grills. Try to cook your chicken so that it is not directly over your heat source if possible.
Remove your chicken from the marinade and place your chicken on the grill so that it is being grilled over indirect heat. Place your chicken skin side down, and grill over medium-low heat (around 350°F) for approximately 45 minutes, or until the chicken reaches 160°F.
Check on your chicken occasionally so that you can prevent any flare-ups. Continue cooking your chicken over indirect heat for a total of one hour. After one hour has passed, flip your chicken over so that the skin side is up, and grill for approximately 15 minutes to make the skin crispy.
Grill until the internal temperature of all of the chicken pieces reaches 165°F. When your chicken reaches 165°F remove it from the grill and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving. Then serve and be prepared to savor some amazing chicken!
The best grilled chicken thigh recipe is the best when served fresh from the grill. To tell when your chicken is done, you can use a meat thermometer, as well as watch the color of your chicken juices. The juices will run clear when it is finished cooking. Please note you can also increase the flavor by gently pulling back some of the skin on your chicken and make sure your seasoning blend gets underneath the skin as well. This is not required but will help to increase your overall flavors.
