Halfsies Chicken

Author Notes: This THE go-to recipe for my family and our relatives for when friends and family come over. It's technically a no-brainer when we invite people over and need to figure out what to cook. It's super easy and scrumptious, which all of the best recipes are. Basically, you just throw 4 simple ingredients into a bag or container with the chicken, wait overnight, and let the marinade do the magic. It's called "halfsies" because all the ingredients are half of a regular measurement. Half a cup, half a tablespoon, et cetera—see? Super easy to remember, too!


Serves 4

  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  1. Place chicken in a plastic bag or large bowl. Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a small bowl. Pour the mixture into the bag/bowl and use your hands to disperse the sugar-salt mixture evenly between chicken.
  2. Leave in the refrigerator 10 to 20 hours. Halfway through take the bag and toss it around to evenly marinate.
  3. Prepare a grill over medium heat. Take chicken out of bag/bowl and place on grill. Grill chicken thighs until cooked through and golden brown, turning over halfway through—about 3 to 5 minutes on each side.
