Maple Glazed Chicken Thighs

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

While chicken breasts are a staple for me, I enjoy the deeper flavors imparted by thighs. This is a recipe I modified from Eating Well magazine that pairs that richness with a slightly sweet flavorful marinade and sauce. These are fabulous when marinated overnight, but you can go a short as two hours. The thighs can be cooked on an indoor or outdoor grill or broiled.

I loved this marinade! I got it marinated about 8 hours and I can't wait to see the flavor at 24 hours!! It was so good. Used bone-in, skinless thighs so it needed a little more time on the grill. Served with asparagus which was perfect. Thanks :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together all ingredients save the thighs in a resealable bag or non reactive container. Add thighs and seal. Marinade in the fridge for 2 to 24 hours.
  2. When ready to cook, prepare the cooking surface with a light coating of cooking spray. Remove the thighs from the marinade removing any excess.
  3. Place thighs on the grill and cook for 4 to 6 minutes per side or until a thermometer registers 165 degrees. Actual cooking time will vary depending on the type of grill chosen. Remove chicken to a serving plate.
  4. Place the marinade in a small sauce pan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature to a low simmer and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Generously brush the chicken with the sauce and serve.
