Chicken thighs are easy on the budget and great for grilling because they stay moist in the heat. Here, they are paired with a fresh corn and tomato salad for a simple summer dinner. When grilling skin-on chicken thighs, watch for flare-ups. Move the chicken away from the flames and reduce heat, if necessary, to keep it from charring. Source:, July 2018

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium.

  • Brush chicken with 1 tablespoon oil; sprinkle all over with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place the chicken on the grill, skin-side down, and cook, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, 23 to 28 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk vinegar and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Add corn, tomatoes, scallions and basil. Toss to coat. Serve the salad with grilled chicken.
