Marinate chicken thighs in BBQ for a tender and flavorful meal from Chungah Rhee of Damn Delicious.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup water
  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • Reynolds Wrap® Non Stick Aluminum Foil

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. 2 Whisk together ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and water. Reserve 1/3 cup and set aside.
  3. 3 Combine ketchup mixture and chicken in a gallon-size slider bag or large bowl; refrigerate and marinate for at least 1 hour to overnight, turning the bag occasionally. Drain the chicken from the marinade; discard marinade.
  4. 4 Make drainage holes in a sheet of Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Foil with a grilling fork. Place foil sheet on grill grate with non-stick (dull) side facing up. Immediately place chicken on foil.
  5. 5 Add chicken to grill and cook, flipping once and basting with reserved 1/3 cup marinade until cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes on each side.
  6. 6 Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

Chef's Notes

Use Reynolds Wrap(R) Non-Stick Foil to prevent chicken from sticking to grill grates.


  1. Looked great, but chicken was so so,. Will make again BUT it needs seasoning for chicken. My advice, marinate in the seasoning (such as olive oil, garlic, thyme..some lime juice and more..just to penetrate the meat)...then bbq and put sauce on then, otherwise this is not worth it
  2. Very easy and delicious. Everyone loved it.
  3. No changes made. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the first time i made it. Making it again tonight.
  4. Delicious
  5. Not bad but not great. I had high hopes and was super excited to serve this to my family especially with all the great reviews. I followed the recipe and directions exactly. The same flavor could be easily achieved w a jar of premade BBQ sauce. Disappointed won't make again.
  6. Really really like the sauce! I followed all the directions as written and it is just great. I prefer a sweeter sauce so this was perfect. The bone-in skin on thighs however were not so great. I don't like to eat a sauced chicken with my fingers and it is too difficult to eat with - Read more ...
  7. Best recipe for boneless chicken thighs!!!! The meat is so tender. YUM!!
  8. Delicious. The marinade was easy to whip up, and the flavor was perfect. Made no changes to original recipe.
  9. They were a hit! Will definitely make them again!
