Salsa

  1. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and gently mix to blend.

Chicken

  1. Preheat the grill to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place the chicken thighs in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Toss, so that the chicken is well coated with the spices and oil.
  3. Place the thighs on the preheated grill and allow them to grill for about 5 minutes. Flip them over and grill for an additional 5 minutes or until the meat thermometer reaches 165 degrees F.
  4. Remove the thighs from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes.
