Sweet & Sour Grilled Chicken Thighs

“Recipe from Weber's Real Grilling. Super easy, fabulous taste. It doesn't taste very sweet or sour, the chicken had a great balanced taste (I did add bit more hot chili sauce to kick it up a bit). The recipe includes using the marinade to make "wilted baby spinach," which I will post below, I didn't have any spinach on hand so I don't know how that part of the recipe tastes like but the chicken was outstanding.”

  1. In a small bowl,whisk the first five ingredients. Place thighs in a large, plastic bag and pour marinade over chicken, press out air of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place the bag in a bowl and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Remove the thighs from bag, reserving the marinade. Pour the marinade into a very large skillet and set it aside. Grill the thighs over Direct High heat until the meat is firm and the juices run clear, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once or twice.
  3. Meanwhile, bring the marinade to a boil over high heat and allow to boil for 1 full minute. Add the tomato and spinach leaves and cook until the spinach is just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes, turning occasionally. Serve the warm spinach mixture under the chicken.
