Hot Nashville Boneless Thighs

Six chicken thighs are heavily seasoned and resting on a white plate next to a bamboo cutting board.

Here’s an easy recipe for Hot Nashville Boneless Thighs that you can make on the grill. This recipe uses pork panko breadcrumbs made from finely ground pork rinds and Duck Fat Spray. The pork rinds allow you to get the crispy, crunchy texture of fried chicken without breading and deep frying in oil.

It uses de-boned chicken thighs and sprayed them with Duck Fat Spray before tossing in pork panko breadcrumbs mixed with hot chicken seasoning. Then they are grilled until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (75 degrees C). You can add more seasoning to the mix and make the chicken as spicy as you want!

You can use bone-in chicken thighs for this recipe if you like. You’ll need to cook for a few additional minutes. Boneless thighs are a little easier to eat, but bone-in thighs are just as delicious.
