Servings: 6

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons fresh thyme

2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary


3 cloves garlic, minced

8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

Trim excess fat from chicken thighs. Whisk soy sauce, oil, maple syrup, pepper, thyme, rosemary and garlic together. Pour marinade over chicken thighs in a large container or zip-close bag. Marinate chicken for 30 minutes or more in the refrigerator. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Place chicken on the grill over direct heat for 2-3 minutes per side, or until char lines appear. Move chicken to indirect heat (a top or side rack on the grill) to finish cooking until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 F, about 5-10 minutes more. Remove from grill and serve. Serves 6.
