– Grill the chicken thighs on direct heat at 300°F (150°C), about 2 minutes on each side, with the skin side down first. Turn the chicken thighs a couple of times to avoid burning. Baste the chicken with olive oil while grilling.
Move the chicken thighs to the side of the grill without direct heat and barbeque the chicken. Cover the gas grill and continue to barbeque the chicken thighs for about 6-8 minutes. The hot air in the grill will BBQ and cook the chicken and will retain the juice.
