How long to Cook Chicken Thighs:
The cook times will vary based on the size of the chicken. Make sure to use a meat thermometer to ensure that the chicken is cooked to the correct temperature.
Using a meat thermometer will make sure you do not overcook your chicken. We recommend staying close to the griddle to ensure your chicken doesn’t burn.
We grilled each side about 5 minutes. While the chicken thighs are cooking, make sure to close the lid or place a dome over the chicken.
Still close by to ensure they are cooked all the way through and did not burn or dry out. We love to have the chicken thighs to have a crispy skin.
How do you know when they are Cooked through:
We use an instant-read meat thermometer to make sure that the chicken reaches a safe internal temperature before eating. Insert the thermometer in the chicken thigh and the temperature should read at least 165 degrees.
This is the best way to ensure your chicken is done instead of cutting into it.
- Marinating – We like to marinate our chicken thighs for at least 30 minutes. If you are able to, marinate the chicken overnight. You can leave in bowl or place in a plastic bag.
- Preheat Blackstone – Make sure to preheat Blackstone to medium high heat before adding chicken thighs.
- Oil Griddle – Use a high point oil to add to the griddle to make sure chicken thighs do not stick.
- Grilling Chicken – While chicken thighs are on the griddle, make sure to close the lid. This helps to lock in the flavor which the chicken is cooking.
- Chicken Breast – You can use chicken breast instead of chicken thighs in this recipe.
- Change the Seasoning – We used garlic powder in this recipe, but you can use garlic salt. Chicken Teriyaki Sauce would also be a good marinade for this delicious recipe.

Refrigerate the leftover chicken in an airtight container for up to 5 days. We like to store in individual containers for an easy lunch or dinner the next day.
