What should I serve this with?

Great questions! This pairs really well with some corn mixed in, or over a bed of vegetables, potatoes, or rice. Get creative!

Can I sub in chicken breast instead of thighs?

Yes, of course! The macros will change slightly, but only less about 2 grams of fat per serving. If you’re not trying to bank some extra fats for later, I highly suggest sticking with the thighs. They have so much great flavor and the fat will BBQ right off.

Do I have to use a meat thermometer?

The best way to insure your chicken is cooked safely, no matter which cooking method you use, is to use a meat thermometer. It will also prevent you from making dry, over cooked chicken. Thermometers are simple to use (I promise!) and very affordable. I like and have all of these:

I have this $20 Wireless one from Walmart

The new MEATER Plus is wireless and syncs with your phone. We recently got this one.

As always, I hope you enjoy this recipe when you make it in your own home. Tag me on Instagram if you’re into that! I absolutely love seeing you guys making my recipes and sharing, it means a lot. Thank you!

    So would you just recommend serving this with some rice and veggies? Or what would be a good option to have with it? Thanks!

    Nevermind, for some reason the top section hadn’t loaded so I see those recommendations in there now 🤣 If you have anything specific to add I’d love to hear it though! Thank you!

      Oh great! I was going to say I remember adding ideas above because I predicted I’d have people wondering. Enjoy, this is a good one.
