Chipotle and Lime Chicken Thighs
Chipotle and Lime Chicken Thighs require only a handful of ingredients, can be cooked in the oven or on the grill, and are juicy, crispy, and full of smokey flavor!
Chipotle lime chicken thighs
(bone in, skin on)
juiced (about 1/4 cup)
chipotle chili powder
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with non stick cooking spray.
Lay out the chicken thighs in the prepared pan, skin-side up. Squeeze the lime juice all over the meat.
Combine the spices in a small bowl, sprinkle generously all over the meat.
Divide the butter into 8 pieces. Place a piece onto each thigh.
Bake for about 40-45 minutes, basting every 15 minutes with the juices in the pan.
Broil the last few minutes to really crisp up the skin. Watch closely. Remove from oven, rest for about 5 minutes and enjoy!
Follow all prior instructions for prepping chicken but do not place butter on top of the chicken thigh.
Place the chicken directly on the grate of a preheated grill. Medium to high is where you want the temperature but all grills vary.
Using the butter in the recipe, melt it and baste the thighs with it every 5 minutes. Flip occasionally and cook until the thigh internal temperature reaches 165-170 degrees, about 25-30 minutes.
