For the marinade

  • Place all of the ingredients into blender and puree until smooth. Place the chicken (s) into a large plastic bag and pour the marinade over the chicken.
    I would allow at least 2 hours to marinade if you have time. Then on a sheet pan or roasting pan, lined with foil or parchment paper, pour the contents of the bag onto the pan and add 1 cup of water.
    Season the chicken with salt all over and place into a preheat 400 degree big green egg (5 % discount) or oven. Cook for roughly 1 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature of the chicken thigh reaches 165 degrees.
    Take out and allow to rest for 20-30 minutes. (if the top of the chicken looks like it is starting to burn while roasting simply place a piece of foil overtop of the chicken to prevent anymore darkening). Once rested slice, serve, and enjoy!
