I like bone in with any kind of meat or fowl, because you get the additional natural flavors from the marrow and skin. It may take a teeny touch longer to cook, but you'll always prefer the results. Here's how I do them, and the same would hold true for all chicken parts, as well as whole.


Bone-In Chicken Thighs
Chick Magnet® Seasoning
Cooking Spray (I use canola)
Unsweetened Apple Juice (optional)


  1. Pat chicken dry, then spritz lightly all around with cooking spray, which wets the surface, so you can sprinkle the Chick Magnet on quite generously, and it'll stick.
  2. Then, spray again over the rub to lock it on. You can use your own judgement for how much rub to use, but I generally suggest a good coating, almost heavy, as all of my rubs are lower in salt, you're unlikely to oversalt your dish.
  3. I prefer cooking them on a gas grill 'cause you can do a bunch of 'em quick, but smoking and roasting work equally well,too.
  4. I spritz lightly with no sugar added apple juice a couple, three times during the cook. Make sure you crisp up that skin real good, now, ya hear?

Spray, sprinkle and spray

DennyMike's mantra when using any of his tasty seasoning blends is spray, sprinkle and spray, a technique that has served him well over the many years he has cooked with them (since 2000!). DennyMike uses canola spray for a couple of reasons; it's fat tree and flavor free, and it's got a higher smoking point than olive. And hey, we're all for olive oil but I prefer to use it in a less hostile environment!. So back to the mantra; always pat the meat or fish dry when necessary, and then spray a light coating of canola all over, sprinkle an even layer of seasoning and then spray again with another light coating to lock the seasoning. Once the first side has been cooked to your liking, flip, and spray sprinkle and spray the same as you did on the first side; finish to your desired temperature (using a quick read digital thermometer.) You can use canola spray in a can, which also is available in a high heat option for gas grill, Or get a manual sprayer/mister and buy your oil in a bottle.
