  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs


  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ½ cup white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 5 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh minced rosemary
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley finely minced
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated white sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh oregano minced
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • zest and juice of one lemon


  • Combine all ingredients for the marinade in a gallon zip top bag.
  • Add whole chicken thighs to bag. Remove excess air, and seal tightly.
  • Massage bag to evenly coat chicken thighs in marinade, and marinate for at least 4 hours, up to 8 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat (between 400-450° Fahrenheit).
  • Remove chicken thighs from marinade, and shake off any excess pieces of herbs or garlic.
  • Place chicken thighs on grill grates and grill for approximately 6-7 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature in the thickest part of the thigh reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Remove chicken thighs to a plate or serving tray, cover lightly with foil, and allow them to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
