How to Make It

Step

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.

Chef's Notes

Ground chile powder is made solely from ground chiles. Find it at Mexican markets, natural food stores and gourmet markets.
