  • 1 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 6 tablespoons canned chipotle chilies in adobo
  • 4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 3 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2.5-3 lbs boneless skinless chicken we used chicken thighs


  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together theWorcestershire sauce, red wine vinegar, water, and lime juice. Add in the garlic, onion, chipotle chillies in adobo, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Once the marinade is well combined, pour it over the chicken.
  • Cover and marinate the chicken for at least 1 hour. The longer you marinate the chicken, the more flavorful it will be. We let ours marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
  • When you are ready to cook the chicken, heat your oven to medium or medium-high heat (about 450-degrees F on the surface). Spray your grates with cooking spray so the chicken doesn’t stick.
  • Cook the chicken 5-6 minutes per side over direct heat. Move the chicken to an area of the grill with indirect heat and cook until the internal temperature reaches 165-degrees F. Remove from the grill and let rest 5 minutes before serving or slicing.


Note: These cooking times are for boneless chicken thighs. You will need to adjust your cooking time for larger or bone-in cuts.
