Description

The chicken thighs marinate in beer, spices, lime juice and cilantro for a few hours then are tossed onto the grill for some crispy charred goodness! The beer is a tenderizer and everything else is flavor!

Ingredients

  • 3 cloves Garlic, Squeezed Through A Garlic Press (2 Cloves If Large)
  • 1 teaspoon Ancho-Chile Pepper (Like Penzy's)
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • ½ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1-½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Sesame Seed Oil
  • 1 cup Beer
  • ½ whole Lime, Juiced
  • 2 pounds Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs, Trimmed Of Any Extra Fat

Preparation

Combine the garlic, spices, cilantro, sesame seed oil, beer and lime juice into a medium-sized bowl. Place chicken thighs in a resealable bag or a large bowl, pour the marinade over top and toss to coat. Seal and place into the fridge for 2 hours, tossing around every now and then.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat, and place the chicken thighs onto the grates (discard remaining marinade). Grill thighs for 4-6 minutes per side (depending on their size) until cooked thoroughly. Let rest before serving!

It was delicious. Once I did it like you serve it and once I made up a salad of it all together and it was delicious.

I had to substitute chili powder for the ancho and olive oil for the sesame but this was still fantastic. I’ve made it with both chicken thighs and tenders and it was great both ways. The leftovers were perfect cut up on a salad.

Excellent…so flavorful!! I used white meat just cause that’s what I prefer and served up with some grilled asparagus. I will add this to the circulation. THANKS!!

Made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! The next time I make this (and I will be making this again) I want to cut up the chicken and use it for chicken tacos! So delicious!
