This may be made on skinless thighs as well: lightly spray the skinned thighs with cooking spray or brush lightly with oil and pat the spice mixture right on to the thigh meat.
Barbecue Rubbed Chicken Thighs
2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs, 8 pieces
- Coat the grill rack with cooking spray; prepare grill for direct heat grilling.
- Combine the brown sugar, cumin, garlic powder, salt, allspice, thyme and cayenne in a small bowl. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the thighs, patting them lightly to help the blend adhere to the surface.
- Place chicken, skin side down, on the grill and cook about 10 minutes per side, or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part (not touching the bone) registers 175-180F.
