  • 6 chicken thighs skinned, deboned
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • ½ cup fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp crushed chili flakes
  • 2 bunches of parsley
  • 1 bunch of mint
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 lemon
  • olive oil


  1. Toss all your chicken ingredients into a bag or bowl and stir.
  2. Let marinate for 2-4 hours.
  3. Grill chicken thighs on a grill, BBQ or regular pan at a medium-to-high heat. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Give them a good 4-5 minutes per side. Thighs are hard to overcook so don’t stress. Let them rest for 4-5 minutes.
  6. Hand tear your herbs.
  7. Thinly slice the red onion.
  8. Toss the red onion in a bowl with the juice of your lemon and a good splash of olive oil (approximately 4 Tbsp), add salt and pepper.
