Juicy Barbecued Chicken Thighs Recipe

My mom made these BBQ chicken thighs for Easter dinner and they were so tender and flavorful. Everyone was raving about the chicken. I literally overheard my mom get props for the chicken at least 5 times.

I jotted down the recipe before heading home and was craving it for the next few days. I re-created it just as soon as I could. I was really craving that chicken! I love that you can prep them ahead of time and just toss ’em on the grill when you’re ready; making them perfect for parties.

You’ll want to marinate the chicken at least 6 hours and it’s best to let them marinate overnight. I’m sharing the detailed grilling and baking methods for this chicken so read on. This is an easy, excellent recipe!

Ingredients for the Tastiest BBQ Chicken:

3 lbs (about 10 count) boneless, skinless chicken thighs
Sea Salt (about 1 tsp)
Pepper (about 1/4 tsp or to taste)
Mrs. Dash Seasoning (about 1 tsp), plain or garlic variety, or your favorite seasoning
Garlic Powder (about 1/2 tsp)
1 Tbsp Real Mayo
1 medium onion, thickly sliced
BBQ Sauce (We love Stubb’s Original)

BBQ Chicken

Marinating the Meat:

1. Season both sides of chicken thighs to taste. I used a total of 1 tsp sea salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1 tsp Mrs. Dash Seasoning, 1/2 tsp garlic powder.  Turn the chicken to coat evenly with seasoning.

2. Stir in 1 Tbsp Mayo and mix the chicken until evenly coated.

3. Add thick-sliced onion and toss everything together. Cover tightly with plastic wrap or a lid and marinate 6 hours or overnight.

Grilling Method:

1. Preheat the grill and generously brush grill plates with oil. Reduce heat to low and place chicken thighs with a smooth side up.

2. Cover the grill and cook for 12-15 minutes. I rotated them once to make criss-cross grill marks. Before flipping the thighs, baste them with BBQ Sauce.

3. Flip thighs over, baste the flip side with BBQ sauce then cover and cook for another 12-15 minutes, rotating once to make grill marks. Check for doneness by cutting the thicker part of the chicken. If juices run clear then its done.

Flip the chicken again, coat it with BBQ sauce and remove from the grill. Let the chicken rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Baking Method:

Preheat Oven to 400˚F.

1. Place Chicken thighs flat with the smooth side up, spaced out in a single layer on a large rimmed baking dish. Bake at 400˚F for 30 mins.

2. Increase heat to 450˚ and Remove chicken from oven to brush the tops and sides generously with BBQ sauce. Return chicken to the oven another 5 minutes or until glaze has dried slightly onto the chicken.

    My experience was less than optimal.

    I’d appreciate it if there were clear instructions about how close to put the chicken thighs together for the baking recipe.

    I followed the instructions, or lack thereof, and when my chicken thighs came out in a sea of fluid, I began to wonder what went wrong.

    It wasn’t until I read someone’s comment / your reply about how to place them, etc, that it made sense.

    This was a recipe for boiled chicken – in the oven.

    I’m likely off of BBQ sauce & chicken for a good long time. Reply

    • Natasha
      August 12, 2019

      Hi Todd, you are correct I didn’t have the spacing and I apologize for that. I have updated the recipe. I did add a link to the large baking sheet we used. Anytime chicken is baked touching, overlapping or stacked, it will create more liquid pooling. Also, doubling the recipe would require baking in 2 separate pans or 1 very large one if it fits in your oven. Reply

    Hi Natasha! Amazing recipe I’ve made tens of times. Thanks! Congratulations on a great website!

    Question: planning to serve it at a party as more of a finger food option. Would you recommend cutting chicken portions in half before or after baking? What about adjusting the cooking time? Thank you! Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      October 5, 2018

      Hi Iga! I haven’t tried it in bite size pieces so I can’t really say. If cutting into smaller pieces you may need to cut time in oven and watch closely. Or you can just cook per recipe and chop into bite size pieces after. Reply

    I have already marunated the meat and will leave it overnight.
    Question:
    What would be the main difference of the grilled vs baked meat in this case? Will the baked ine be as juicy as grilled?

    Natasha thank you for this recipe. I made this dish for our annual potluck Christmas party at office. It was so good. I got so many compliments. I tried it before but I used onion power and minced onions, hot sauce instead of barque sauce. This time I followed the recipe. I used onions. Walmart had eight yellow onions in bag for one dollar and ninety four cents. I usually pay one dollar for one large onion. I also store the onions in a old stocking it keep for months. Just make sure you keep from the potatoes. Other tip when I mardibate for 24 hours I put the onions at bottom of pan. That way it keep the chicken off of the pan. The flavor of onions will go through the meat. This recipe was so good. I didnt from Stubbs barque sauce so I use kraft bb sauce. I cut the chicken into bite size pieces into tooth pick to make it easy for pot luck. Reply

    Natasha I just finished making juicy chicken thighs. I got bag of Tyson skinless boneless chicken on sale when I bought the 2.16 pork lion from Walmart. Thanks to you Dagi it came out good. I wasn’t sure what do with thighs. But I used your recipe it was good. I didn’t have ms. Dash so I used poultry seasoning. I was out of onions. I used minced onions and onion power. I used hot sauce instead barbeque sauce. It still came out good. Iam try next time with onions ,ms dash and barbaque sauce. I baked it in oven at 400 for 30 minutes. Then 450 for 5 minutes get sauce to stick. I let it marinade for 6 hours. One reveiver say add Worcestershire sauce to marinade do you know how much? I have French’s Worcestershire sauce in cabinet. I have question for you Natasha when you marinade you cut up one onion . When you put in oven do you leave onions on top or do you put in bottom pan? When you bake in oven what size psn. I used my pyrex dish. What kind mayo use?I used Hellman’s or best food mayo. Because thats what I had in fridge. I also like Dukes its southern mayo company. Thanks for tip about using mayo for chicken thighs it really is juicy. Also recipe Lipton onion mix has hamburgers recipe for juicy burgers use 2.5 ground beef Lipton secret onion mix and bread crumbs it uses 1/2 cup mayonnaise. The burgers are so juicy. That’s a recipe for birthday party grilled chicken and juicy burgers.Thanks for answering my questions. Reply

      Hi Veronica, I haven’t tried adding Worcestershire sauce because I didn’t think it needed any. When grilling, I did not put the onions on since they would just fall through the grates. It wouldn’t hurt to add them when baking if you wanted to. I have actually used both brands (Hellman’s and Best Foods with great results. Thank you for sharing your tips and ideas1 🙂 Reply

    We made these last night. I handled the marinade and hubby manned the grill. I seasoned my chicken thighs (bone in, unskinned) with garlic powder, onion flakes, savory, parsley, salt and cracked pepper. And then followed your directions exactly using Shedd’s southern spicy/sweet sauce. The end result was the most delicious chicken thighs I have ever eaten! And I don’t normally like thighs or any other dark meat. Thanks, I’m a convert and will definitely make these again! Reply

    Hi! I just saw your recipe and it looks so delicious I’m trying it today (chicken is currently marinating in the fridge)! I’m using bone-in chicken thighs with skin, is that ok? Because I only noticed later that your pic shows boneless skinless chicken thighs…oops!! Also, I added a bit more than 1 tbsp. of mayo since I didn’t have enough for the 9 thighs (guess they were a bit big) and I didn’t add any onions since I was worried they would burn in the oven or on the grill (or worse yet fall through the grill grates!) Do the onions always turn out well for you? If so I’ll try it with the onions next time. Thanks so much!

      I didn’t even realize that I didn’t write “boneless, skinless” I added that. Thanks so much for catching it! It should still work with the bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs but it will take slightly longer to grill. Also, about the onion, I don’t usually add the onion to the grill; it’s only used to flavor the chicken while marinating. Reply

    what if I substitute for bone in thighs? How long will it take to grill? Reply

      I haven’t tried these with the bone in, but you probably want to cook it about the same amount of time. You might add an extra 5 minutes, or until the juices run clear and internal temperature reaches 170˚F. Reply

    Thank you so much for the amazing recipe. I made this for dinner today for a crowd, and I made alot! It was all gone. Everyone was raving about it, it turned out amazing! Everyone was asking for the recipe. Delicious. We used Sweet baby Rays original BBQ sauce, and loved it. Reply

    By the way, are the onions supposed to be thickly sliced instead of BBQ sauce? Reply

    I make pork chops the same way. Sometimes add barbecue sause to the marinade and don’t reapply it when grilling.
    Next time will make chicken!

    Hey, I’m trolling your website for new recipe ideas today :). This looks delicious. We barbecue chicken thighs just straight out of the packaging–they’re that tasty & moist, but I’ll have to try this marinade–I’m sure it’s even more flavorful. I love recipes that can be prepped ahead of time and throw on the grill or in oven at dinnertime because there’s always something going on with the kids at that time of day (and I can’t make too much noise in the kitchen while Adele naps). Also, love your photos! Reply

  • These look phenom! There is nothing that I like quite as much as bbq’d chicken. Well, that is not entirely true, I don’t discriminate against BBQ’s pork. Anyways! your mom’s chicken looks fabulous! I’ll have to mix all this up tonight and then make it in my grill pan tomorrow! Reply

    Hi I have to share 2 no brainer recipes for chicken and salmon. People give me rave reviews and think that I am lying when I give them the recipe. These are my go to recipes when I need a foolproof main course that is easy. Try them you will be surprised.

    Chicken breasts or thighs
    Marinade chicken breasts or thighs in bottled Caesar salad dressing several hours or overnight. Grill on bbq.
    Garnish with green onion or anything you want to try.
    Salmon
    Salmon filet, all in one large piece (costco) or cut into serving pieces. Cover with creamy cucumber salad dressing (Kraft). Let sit for 30-60 minutes. Grill on bbq or bake in the oven at 350. I add dill sometimes. Garnish with lemon or sliced cucumber. Reply

    Looks so good! We do not have a BBQ so I’ll be trying the oven method 🙂 We love chicken here.. white, dark… all of it! It does look incredibly delicious in your photos 😀

      Of course I spelled it with an extra “t”. lol. Thanks so much for pointing that out. At least I didn’t do anything really embarrassing like mis-spell it in the title or the permanent link address! 😉 Seriously thanks girl! I think you’ll love the oven method too. That is how my mom made hers. We decided to break out the BBQ at home so we put them on the grill, but they are excellent baked. Reply

      I think this one is from Rosauers but I’m pretty sure it’s in most grocery stores. I don’t recall seeing it in Costco, but it might be there? You might call your local Costco before you drive over. 🙂 Reply

    I LOVE that you used chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts, so much more flavour! Life is too short to eat white meat. 😉 Wait…I think I forgot I am dieting. Ouch. Anyway, looks delicious, will be perfect for barbecues. Reply

      I’ve read that the differences are so small that I don’t even pay attention to it! “According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 100 g of white meat has 0.56 g of saturated fat and 114 calories; while the same amount of dark meat has 1 g and 119 calories….” Source. I’ll eat dark meat for an extra 3 calories any day! 😉 Reply

    My mom has been making barbecue like this for years and now I always make it like this. Except we add some soy sauce to give it a bit of tangy flavor. But I love this. Will definetly be making this with thighs for our next sunny Sunday here in Washington. Reply
