Liz Quick
My family raved the first time I made these and I have to agree, they are incredible. Which is why I've made them every week since then. If you need an easy recipe that produces tender chicken, then this is the perfect recipe!

  • gallon ziploc
  • grill


  • 12 boneless chicken thighs
  • cup avocado oil
  • ½ cup liquid aminos, or soy sauce
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons liquid smoke
  • 2 tablespoons spicy mustard
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder


  • Add all of the marinade ingredients to a large, gallon sized ziploc bag. Seal the bag and mix the ingredients well.
  • Once mixed, open the ziploc and add the chicken thighs to the bag. Seal the bag and allow the chicken to sit for 2-3 hours in the marinade.
  • Flip the chicken and marinade every hour to ensure both sides of the chicken are coated in the delicious marinade.
  • Preheat the grill to 450°F. Remove the chicken from the marinade, dispose of the leftover marinade, and place the chicken on the preheated grill.
  • Turn the grill down to medium low heat and grill each side of the chicken for 5 minutes, or until cooked through.
