2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 tablespoons milk
How to make it…
There may be a lot of ingredients there, but this recipe is surprisingly simple to make. The first step is simply to get a large bowl and mix everything except for the chicken thighs together. How easy was that? Pour the marinade mixture into a large seal-able plastic bag and add the chicken. Now simply pop this in the fridge for 8 hours, or just leave it overnight until you’re ready to cook.
When you’re hungry and ready to cook up this taste sensation, set your EGG to cook indirect with the convEGGtor at a temperature of 400F (204C). Remove the chicken from the bag and place them on the EGG with the chicken skin downwards onto the grid. Cook for ten minutes then turn them over. Cook for a further half an hour.
