Tequila-Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs

Tequila-Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs is a great summer weekend or holiday recipe. It requires a simple rub and a glaze, and grilling takes extra time, but the added effort is totally worth it. This chicken is slightly spicy and slightly sweet, which is one of my favorite combinations. If you can’t find chipotle powder, you can purchase whole dried chipotles, chop them roughly, and run them through a spice grinder. (Our spice grinder is really just a cheap hand-held coffee grinder, kept separate for that purpose) It’s great on every piece of chicken as well, not just thighs. We often just purchase a whole chicken and cut it up. You will need both lime juice and lime zest for the glaze; it amounts to about one lime. Buy a few limes at the store and pair with a wonderful lime margarita!
