MMM (Mustard, Milk, Marinade) Chicken
This recipe features boneless/skinless chicken thighs, which in my humble opinion are the tastiest cut of the chicken and is a bargain buy at the grocery store to boot.
- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- 1 cup plain yogurt (Can substitute with mayonnaise, which actually used to be a featured ingredient putting another ‘M‘ in the name, but the yogurt is better)
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 4 Tbsp yellow mustard
- 1 Tbsp Cookies Flavor Enhancer or your favorite poultry rub
- 1 Tbsp oregano
- 1 Tbsp red pepper flakes
- 1 Tbsp black pepper
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the yogurt, mustard and milk. After that is combined, whisk in the remaining dry ingredients to complete the marinade. Add the chicken thighs, using your hands to thoroughly coat them. Cover and refrigerate for up to eight hours. When ready to grill, place the thighs near the hot spot on the grill. Let those babies sizzle for about three minutes to get those great grill marks. Since this marinade is on the thicker side, it could take up to five minutes. Flip over to the lower heat side of the grill and cover for about 15 minutes. Rest the chicken for about five minutes and serve. Excellent paired with rosemary/dill potatoes and grilled asparagus.
