Course Main


  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 recipe of Italian Salsa Verde click the link above


  • Make the salsa verde.
  • Marinate the chicken thighs in ¾ cups of the salsa verde for one hour in ziplock bag or a large covered bowl. Toss the chicken around in the marinade so it's evenly coated. Set the remaining ½ cup of the salsa verde aside and save for topping the grilled chicken.
  • Remove chicken from plastic bag or bowl, and discard any marinade that's touched the raw chicken.
  • Grill the chicken on a preheated grill (or grill pan on your stovetop), about 5 minutes per side, until the chicken is cooked and an instant read thermometer registers at 165* F. Remove from heat when cooked and lest rest for 5 minutes.
  • Arrange the chicken on a platter, and drizzle with some of the remaining salsa verde (that did NOT touch the raw chicken). I like to leave a bowl of the salsa verde out with a spoon so people can add more if they like.
