I came up with this grilled chicken thighs recipe by accident when I ended up with way more chicken thighs than guests I had invited.
The long marination time is key to this incredibly tender and delicious recipe. I like to prepare these grilled chicken thighs in my Cast Iron Grill Pan, or over an open fire or coal bed
Chicken thighs tend to flare up over an open fire, especially with the skin on so be prepared to adjust them frequently on the grill rack.

Insanely Good Chicken Thighs
- Combine the buttermilk, soy sauce, sugar, onions, jalapeno, and garlic until blended.
- Place the chicken in a resealable bag, then add the onions and marinade.
- Shake the bag to coat the chicken thoroughly, then marinate for 12-24 hours, turning 2-3 times.
- Grill over the fire or hot coals until the internal temperature reaches 165 F.
