This Southern Rocking Thighs Recipe, is right on the money, comes out rocking every time! If you are looking for a chicken recipe that doesn’t include bbq sauce but is full of flavor, tender, and juicy, this one definitely fills the bill. Make sure you serve it with some tater salad, corn on the cob, slaw and sweet tea, and invite me! Lol Happy grilling!


2 lbs. boneless, skinless Chicken Thighs or breasts

3 cloves of Garlic, pressed through a garlic press

1 teaspoon Cumin

1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

1 teaspoon Sea Salt

1/2 teaspoon Fresh Cracked Pepper

2 tablespoons Fresh Cilantro, chopped

1 cup Beer

2 tablespoons Sesame Seed Oil ( you can use any oil you have on hand)

Juice of a large lime

Combine the garlic, spices, cilantro, sesame seed oil, beer and lime juice into a medium sized bowl. Place chicken thighs in a re-sealable bag or a large bowl, pour the marinade over top and toss to coat. Seal and place into fridge for 2-4 hours.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat, and place the chicken thighs onto the grates. Grill for 5-7 minutes per side or until cooked thoroughly. You can also cook on the stove or bake, it’s delicious any way you make it.
