Mediterranean Grilled Tumeric Chicken Recipe

Mediterranean Grilled Tumeric Chicken Recipe 

This easy grilled chicken recipe involves marinating boneless skinless chicken thighs in a simple marinade with turmeric that creates a bright beautiful color and wonderful taste!

Chicken thighs are one of my favorite cuts of chicken because they’re super flavorful and hard to dry out. I always used to swear by the skin on, bone in version. Well, my love has shifted to the boneless skinless chicken thighs for a few reasons. Number one, I don’t have to peel the skin off and eat around the bone. Number two, the skinless boneless thighs soak up a lot of marinade and are hard to dry out because it’s mostly dark meat. Chicken thighs with the skin are very forgiving because of how much fat there is, but when you marinate the boneless skinless thighs, you pretty much ensure they aren’t going to dry out on the grill. This recipe calls for a minimum of 30 minutes marinating but marinating them all night will make for a really moist end product.
