It is a little less convenient, I will give you that, but the results are worth it.
So here's a super simple chicken thigh recipe. Marinate over night in a bit of extra virgin olive oil and freely sprinkle with garlic powder, red pepper flakes and salt. That's all. Grill and enjoy. You will be surprised how tasty this is. Made with just a few ingredients that most likely you will have in your spice cabinet collection.
If you have a gas grill, no worries, try it anyway. It will still be tasty. ;-)
