Killer Curried Chicken Thighs

curriedchicken Recently we had some friends over last minute and they ended up bringing food and cooking, which they often do!....we  had these amazing chicken thighs that were so flavorful.  They are seasoned with a curry "rub", but I wouldn't have known it was curry...

I asked him for his recipe... this is it!  Thank you Dr. Shawn!  These chicken thighs are SO delicious!  I had always been a chicken breast girl... until now!!

You will need:

  • boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • mild curry (a good quality one)
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil

Rinse the chicken thighs and pat dry.  Spread them out on a baking sheet so they are in a single layer.  Season liberally with sea salt, pepper and curry powder.  Make sure to ENTIRELY cover easy side with the spices.


Let the dry rub sit on the chicken for 1 hour to overnight (less salt if overnight).  When ready to cook, drizzle with olive oil and rub or put into a gallon ziplock and rub.  Let chicken come to room temperature if you had it in the fridge overnight.  BBQ the chicken for 20-30 minutes, turning every 5-10 minutes.  It's hard to overcook thighs. ;)  I served a green salad with this.... but he said it's amazing with a cucumber salad.  I'll be trying that the next time I make these!

By the way, these were even amazing cold the following day!  I had one for lunch!
