  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  1. Start by marinating the chicken thighs. In a bowl, mix the chipotle barbecue sauce, olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  2. Add the chicken thighs to the marinade, ensuring they are well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
  4. During the last few minutes of grilling, baste the chicken with the remaining marinade for an extra burst of flavor.
  5. Once cooked through and beautifully charred, remove the chicken thighs from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.
  6. Serve the Smokey Chipotle BBQ Chicken Thighs hot with your favorite sides, like coleslaw or cornbread. Enjoy!
