What surprised me most is how much my son (8) and his cousin (7) loved this recipe! They loved the chicken AND brussel sprouts and refilled twice! That is always the best compliment; when children love something I make. I especially love hearing those kinds of reviews – they just make my day.

Ingredients for the Best Chicken Marinade:

Want to know a secret? This is the same marinade we used on our very popular chicken legs recipe and it works so well with chicken thighs! It’s also very similar to our most popular baked salmon with garlic and dijon. This marinade is awesome and so versatile. The garlic, dijon and lemon juice is a winning combination!

*How to Trim Brussel Sprouts:

  1. Cut off and discard the tough/brown/dry stem portion at the very base of the sprout
  2. Peel back the tough/thick/dry/loose/damaged outer leaves
  3. Cut brussel sprouts in halves or quarters if very large. If sprouts are very small, leave them whole

How Long to Marinate Chicken:

The secret to flavorful and juicy chicken is the marinating time. The longer you marinate, the more flavorful and juicy your chicken will be.

  • Marinate a bare minimum of 2 hours but 6 hours or overnight is ideal.
  • You can even make it 2 days ahead of time if you are planning a big party and want to prep in advance. It’s even better if you can stir the chicken midway. Now you know how to marinate chicken!
  • Quick Tip: A food saver can cut the marinating time in half. Removing the air from the food saver bag forces the marinade into the chicken.

Chicken Thigh Recipes to Discover:

Chicken thigh meat is our favorite. We love the dark meat compared to chicken breast because it is more forgiving and doesn’t overcook as easily. Chicken thighs naturally have more flavor and they are juicier. Here are the most-loved chicken thigh recipes on our blog:

    This is amazing! The chicken is full of flavor and the sprouts and delicious too. Highly recommend turning the broil on low for like 4 mins after cooking to add a little char/crispy.

    Came out delicious, as always! Served it with some leftover veggies that we had, which I crisped up in the air fryer.
