- 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- 1/4 cup chipotle barbecue sauce

- During the last few minutes of grilling, baste the chicken with the remaining marinade for an extra burst of flavor.
- Once cooked through and beautifully charred, remove the chicken thighs from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.
