  2. Coat chicken thighs with the olive oil. Season them with salt and pepper.

  3. Place about 1 tbsp of the butter mixture under the skin of each thigh.

  4. Place the chicken on the hot grill with the buttered side up.

  5. Grill the chicken over a medium heat. Turn the thighs occasionally until done (about ten minutes total).

  6. Tip

    Chicken is easy to cook and it is inexpensive.


    Meat from chicken is less dense than beef or pork. This makes it easier for bacteria to travel through chicken meat. Chicken should always be cooked all the way through with no pinkness. Cook chicken to an internal temperature of at least 76.7 degrees C.
