Author Mary Smith {Mary's Whole Life}


  • 6-8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp Frank's Red Hot or hot sauce of choice
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes


  • Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl and whisk well. Pour the sauce over the chicken thighs in a large baking dish or zip-lock plastic bag. Let them marinate for at least 1 hour.
  • Heat your grill over medium high heat. Add the chicken to the grill, skin side up, and discard any remaining marinade. Cook for 5 minutes, then flip. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, then flip again. Continue this pattern, flipping back and forth, until they have been cooking for 25 minutes or reach an internal temperature of 175.
  • Remove the chicken from the grill and let them rest for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
