  • Summary

    Boneless skinless chicken thighs are a reliable choice when it comes to grilling chicken. They’re thinner than breasts, so they cook more evenly, and the higher fat content makes them difficult to overcook. In this recipe inspired by Turkish chicken kebabs, a yogurt and herb marinade makes them supremely tender and helps them brown beautifully on the grill. While some citrus-heavy marinades begin to break down chicken after just a few hours, this marinade uses only the zest, saving the juice for a quick squeeze before serving. The result is incredibly tender chicken you can prep up to a day in advance. Oregano and thyme work well together here, but feel free to play around with herbs and use what you have on hand, or substitute dried herbs in a pinch.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
    • 2 garlic cloves, grated
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano (or 1 teaspoon dried oregano)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme (or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme)
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for the grill or pan
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (Diamond Crystal), plus more for serving
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, plus more for serving
    • 1 lemon
    • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
    • Chopped fresh parsley, for serving (optional)
