Crispy Grilled Boneless Chicken Thighs

Crispy Grilled Boneless Chicken Thighs

These crispy chicken thighs are by far one of my favourite recipes. They are quick and easy to make and have so much flavour.

They are also budget-friendly if you debone your own chicken thighs, which if you want boneless chicken with the skin left on you will pretty much have to learn to do this yourself.

You can save even more if you buy when chicken is on sale, debone and then freeze to pull out and grill as needed.

They make great sandwiches or wraps and are amazing sliced to use in a salad or in a pasta dish.
