  • Grill
  • tongs
  • Bowl
  • Cutting Board


  • 2 lbs boneless skin-off chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper or to taste


  • Heat your grill to about 400 degrees F. and lightly oil the grill plates so the chicken doesn't stick. 
  • Place the chicken thighs on a cutting board and pat dry with a paper towel and trim off any excess fat. 
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. 
  • In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and brown sugar. Mix well. 
  • Place the seasoned chicken in a large bowl and drizzle it with olive oil and the spice blend. Mix well. 
  • Place the chicken thighs on the grill and cook for 6-7 minutes on each side or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. 
  • Allow the chicken to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. Enjoy! 


  • You can use a gas or charcoal grill. If you don't have a grill, simply cook these on the stovetop.
  • I recommend using 1 teaspoon of Kosher salt for every pound of chicken. For this recipe, I used 2 lbs of chicken so I used 2 teaspoons of salt. However, feel free to season to taste.
