Equipment

  • 1 grill

Ingredients
  

  • 2 pounds chicken thighs, may also use chicken breast

Marinade

  • 2 tablespoons Avocado Oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ¼ cup dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl, whisk the marinade ingredients, but omit the mayonnaise. You will add the mayonnaise later when you drizzle the marinade over the chicken.
    Add everything, besides the mayo, to a small bowl and whisk.
  • In a 9 x 13 dish or ziplock, add the chicken. Pour 2/3 of the marinade over the chicken. Move the chicken around to get it evenly coated. Chill for 1 hour.
  • To the remaining 1/3 cup of marinade, add the mayo and whisk. Pop in the fridge for later.
  • After the chicken has marinated, heat your grill to high heat.
  • Add your chicken thighs and reduce the heat to medium. Let the chicken cook for 5-7 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for another 5 minutes, or until it's cooked through.
  • Plate your chicken over a bed of spinach or a bun and drizzle the remaining marinade over it. Enjoy!

Notes

If you make this with chicken breast, be sure to use a mallet to tenderize and thin them down so they don’t dry out while cooking.
