Ingredients for Making Blackstone Chicken Thighs
- Parsley: You want about one bunch of parsley.
- Scallions: Often called spring onions or green onions, this will add a bright flavor.
- Garlic: Freshly minced is best, but garlic powder works if you prefer.
- Oil: I recommend avocado oil for high heat cooking, but you can use your favorite high heat oil. Vegetable oil is another popular choice.
- Vinegar: Red wine vinegar adds just the right punch of flavor.
- Salt and pepper: Adjust the seasonings according to your personal preference. Onion salt or garlic salt can be used if you like. Smoked paprika is a nice addition if you’d like to add a smoky flavor.
- Chicken: Use boneless chicken thighs. If you wish to use this marinade with bone-in chicken or want to cook chicken breasts, make sure you have an instant-read thermometer and adjust the cooking time.
Chicken thigh griddle recipes are summertime classics that pair with many different side dishes.
I love to serve them with a pasta salad, like this Caprese Pasta Salad or this Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Salad.
Other great options include Instant Pot Potato Salad, Blackstone Potatoes, or Broccoli Slaw Salad.

How to Make Chicken Thighs on the Blackstone
First, start by making the chicken marinade.
Place the parsley, scallions, and garlic in a food processor and process until chopped.
Add the ol, vinegar, and seasonings and process until combined.
Remove ¼ cup of the marinade from your food processor, and divide between two separate dishes.
Place the chicken in a shallow dish or plastic bag and pour the remaining marinade over it.
Marinate the chicken for two to four hours.
Preheat one side of your Blackstone to medium-high heat and the other side to low.
Cook the chicken on the warmer side for five minutes. Flip the chicken, and brush with the reserved sauce from one of the containers. Cook for another 4 minutes.
Place chicken on the cooler side of the griddle surface and cook for another 5 minutes (about 2 ½ minutes per side), or until the internal temperature is 160° F at the thickest part.
Let this chicken rest for at least five minutes, and then serve with the remaining sauce.
