- 4 large bone-in chicken thighs, with skin (about 2 pounds)
- 2 teaspoons pure chile powder (see Note)
- Freshly ground pepper
How to make this recipe
- Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Season the chicken thighs liberally with the chile powder, salt and pepper. Grill the seasoned thighs over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until the chicken is lightly charred and cooked through, about 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a work surface and let rest for 5 minutes. Serve.
The seasoned chicken can be kept in the refrigerator uncovered for up to two days. Bring to room temperature before grilling.
Ground chile powder is made solely from ground chiles. Find it at Mexican markets, natural food stores and gourmet markets.
