  • In a mixing bowl (or a Ziploc bag), combine paprika, crushed garlic cloves, finely chopped parsley, salt, pepper and olive oil. Give everything a good mix.
  • Add the chicken thighs and coat each one of them with the mixture. Make sure they are all well coated before covering the bowl with cling film (or locking the Ziploc bag). Refrigerate them for at least 30 minutes before grilling.
  • Grill on both sides until they are nice brown and cooked through (see note 4).
  • Best served right away!


  1. Paprika – either smoked or sweet can be used.
  2. I used 4 garlic cloves which was about 1 tablespoon of crushed/pressed garlic. It was the perfect amount but every garlic is different so you might like to adjust this the next time you make the marinade.
  3. Parsley – I use about 4 tablespoons of finely chopped parsley, but you can use slightly less or more, if you like.
  4. The time does not include marinating – count with at least 30 minutes.
  5. Please note that the cooking time may vary depending on the size of the thighs you use and on the heat in your grill. If not sure, always check with food thermometer first. Mine were ready in about 10-12 minutes.
  6. I used skinless chicken thighs. You can also use thighs with skin. If you do, I recommend grilling them the skin-side down first.
