This came from Taste of Home magazine. We were "wowed" by the flavor! It tastes like BBQ infused into the meat, instead of in a sauce on the outside. The meat was extremely tender and juicy as well. We low carb, so I used liquid sucralose instead of sugar. I used a "family pack" (about 10 pieces) of bone-in, skin-on thighs, and a half recipe of the marinade was the perfect amount. For the half recipe, I used 70 drops of liquid sucralose, and it was fairly sweet (the way we like it). I'm sure this would work well on any cut of chicken, light or dark. A gas grill should work on low/med heat.

How to Make BBQ Chicken Marinade for the Grill


  • 1Mix marinade ingredients together (I do this in freezer baggies or 9x13 casserole dishes) and pour over chicken. Marinate 48 hours, turning every 6-8 hours.
  • 2Oil grill grates. Grill thighs over indirect heat
    15-20 min. per side until internal temp is 160-170 degrees. (If using skin-on chicken, I like to place chicken over the coals for 5-10 minutes at the end to crisp the skin.)
