2 cups fresh parsley leaves, chopped

8 large sprigs fresh thyme, chopped

4 large sprigs fresh rosemary, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 small shallot, diced

2 tablespoons cracked black peppercorns

2 tablespoons cracked pink peppercorns

1 1/4 cups extra-virgin olive oil

8 skin-on chicken thighs

Flaky salt, such as Maldon, for seasoning

Salad, for serving


Mix the parsley, thyme, rosemary, garlic, shallots, black peppercorns and pink peppercorns together in a bowl. Add the olive oil to cover the herbs/spices. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the marinade.

Place the chicken thighs in a resealable plastic bag. Add the marinade and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.

Preheat the grill to medium.

Remove the chicken thighs from the marinade, pat with a paper towel and place, fleshy-side down, on the hot grill. Grill until cooked through, turning once, 7 to 8 minutes per side. Finish with the reserved 2 tablespoons of marinade and some flaky salt. Serve on top of your favorite salad.
