Smoked Mojo Chicken Thighs
Chicken gets a quick marinade in a citrusy, garlicky mojo marinade and then cooks in just 45 minutes on the Traeger Wood Pellet Grill!
Traeger Signature Blend
- 8 chicken thighs bone in, skin on
Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl and whisk.
Place the chicken in a ziplock bag and pour over the marinade. Marinate in the fridge for 2-4 hours.
30 minutes before you are ready to grill, remove the chicken from the marinade, let it rest on a rack and come to room temperature.
Preheat your wood pellet grill to 425.
Place the chicken skin side down and grill for 20 minutes.
Flip and cook until chicken measures 165 degrees, about 10-15 more minutes.
Remove chicken from the grill and let rest for 5-10 minutes.
Use your favorite wood pellets for this. I like to use Traeger Signature Blend.
You can cook the thighs skin side up the whole time, if you don't want to have to flip them.
