Deviled Chicken Thighs
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
11/4 teaspoons coarse salt, either kosher or sea salt
1/2 teaspoon dried hot red chili flakes, or more to taste
10 to 12 plump bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 6 ounces each)
At least 30 minutes and up to the night before you plan to grill the chicken, combine the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and chili in a small bowl to make a paste. Coat the chicken thoroughly with the paste, rubbing it over and under the skin, working it as far as possible under the skin without tearing the skin. Place the chicken in a zippered plastic bag and seal. Refrigerate unless you plan to grill the chicken within the next 30 minutes. (If chilled, let the chicken sit at room temperature in the bag for 20 to 30 minutes before proceeding.)
Grill the thighs uncovered over high heat for 3 to 4 minutes, turning to sear all sides. Move the chicken to medium-low heat and continue grilling for an additional 12 to 15 minutes, turning every 3 minutes or so. Watch for flare-ups, shifting the thighs away from the flame if necessary. The thighs are done when the skin is brown and crisp and the juices run clear. Serve immediately. Serves 6.
