Lemon and Herb Grilled Chicken Thighs


  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 sprigs rosemary, leaves removed from stems
  • 3 sprigs oregano, leaves removed from stems
  • 1 small bunch basil, about 20 leaves
  • 3 tbsp. parsley leaves
  • 3 tbsp. chives, roughly chopped
  • 1 shallot, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, halved
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 tbsp. vegetable oil 
  • 2 lemons, zest and juice


  1. Begin by making the herb mixture. Finely chop, or in a small food processor combine the rosemary, oregano, basil, parsley, chives, garlic, shallot, 1 ½ tbsp. of salt, sprinkling of pepper, vegetable oil and the zest of 2 lemons. Pulse to combine into a chunky paste.

  2. Add chicken to a large resealable bag. Pour the paste over the chicken thighs and gently massage, making sure to coat every piece.

    Refrigerate for 2 hours up to 6.

  3. Preheat grill to medium heat, about 350 F. Clean and oil grates.

    Grill chicken pieces for 20-25 minutes. Flipping every so often and making sure the chicken doesn't burn. You want a nice char and the fat to render.

  4. Remove from grill and juice 1 lemon over the hot chicken. Sprinkle with any of the leftover fresh chopped herbs as well as a light sprinkling of salt.
