Back-Pocket Marinade for Grilled Chicken


An overachieving marinade for grilled chicken that comes together with two ingredients: mayonnaise and hot sauce. The oil and egg yolks in mayonnaise enrich the lean meat and help it char more confidently on the grill. Meanwhile, the hot sauce adds zing from vinegar, kick from chiles, and whatever salt and spices are in your chosen brand. I’ve tried and loved Cholula and Frank’s for this recipe, but I can’t wait to hear what you come up with. The whole point of this marinade is to be flexible, so see what’s in your pantry and roll with that. What’s more: These two ingredients also morph into a dipping sauce. I like a one-to-four ratio, but adjust it to taste until it’s spoon-licking-good. You’re the dipper after all. And if you want to put this marinade-slash-sauce toward any other grilled meat? Go for it—and let me know what you think in the comments below.

Back-Pocket Marinade for Grilled Chicken

  • PREP TIME6 hours 15 minutes
  • COOK TIME8 minutes
Ingredients send grocery list
  • Marinated chicken
  • 2 or 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 to 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons hot sauce (see Author Notes)
  • 1 pinch kosher salt (optional)
  • Spicy mayo
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce, plus more to taste
  1. Marinate the chicken: Halve the chicken breasts horizontally. (If you’re an overachiever, you can also pound them to an even thickness for more even cooking.) Add them to a container or a zip-top bag. Combine the mayo, hot sauce, and a big pinch of salt (if you’re using it) in a bowl. Pour this marinade over the chicken and make sure the meat is fully covered. Refrigerate for 6 to 24 hours.
  2. When you’re ready to eat, heat a grill to high for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. While that’s heating up, remove the chicken pieces from the marinade and use your hands to squeeze off as much marinade as possible (this helps it brown better).
  4. Oil the grill grates, then add the chicken. Cover the grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until charred. Flip, cover again, and cook another 3 to 4 minutes, until charred on the other side and cooked through (165°F). Transfer to a plate and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Let rest for a few minutes while you make the spicy mayo: Combine both ingredients and taste. Does it need more hot sauce? Adjust as needed.
  6. Serve the grilled chicken with the spicy mayo for dunking.

Ingredients for Making Mayo Marinated Chicken

This Whole30 grilled chicken recipe calls for boneless, skinless thighs. You can purchase bone-in thighs and debone them yourself by cutting out the bone with chicken sheers. This is a good budget-friendly option as bone-in thighs tend to be cheaper without having the added processing that’s needed for boneless skinless chicken thighs.

You’ll also need a few spices including onion powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Finally, you’ll need minced garlic, avocado oil, a lime and mayo. I use Primal Kitchen’s Whole30 Approved avocado oil mayo. Their mayo is the best healthy mayo and we always keep it in stock in our pantry. Never made with any sneaky or junky additives, and it’s also paleo, keto and sugar-free.

Why Use Mayo in a Marinade

Grilling with a mayo marinade (yes, mayo!) is one of the best and easiest ways to get insanely flavorful chicken. The grilled chicken doesn’t taste anything like mayo once it’s cooked, and it can be used with almost any type of protein. Mayo is packed with healthy fats from the oil and egg, and healthy fats are what give our foods so much flavor.

So not only does using mayo up the flavor, but it also helps lock in the juices of the meat by forming a protective layer around each chicken thigh. Because avocado oil is best for high heat cooking, Primal Kitchen’s mayo is perfect for this use. Mayo marinades can be used with fish, pork (like ribs), whole chickens, wings, and more.

How to Prepare Your Whole30 Mayo Marinade

These chicken thighs are incredibly simple to prep. You’ll simply add all of the ingredients for the marinade into a large mixing bowl and stir it well to combine everything. Then add in all of your chicken thighs and use tongs to toss them with the mayo marinade. Let the chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes, up to several hours, prior to grilling.

Grilling & Serving Your Chicken Thighs

Chicken thighs are great on the grill because they cook quickly, and are hard to overcook because the dark meat keeps them juicy and tender. You’ll want to heat your grill on medium-high heat, and then once your grill is over 450 degrees F., place the chicken thighs onto the grates. Close the lid and let them grill for about 8 minutes.

Then you’ll flip them and grill for an additional 8 minutes. When you’re flipping them, if they don’t easily come up off of the grill grates without sticking, then just let that one cook another minute or two before making the flip. Some thicker thighs will take longer, and some grills have spots that get hotter than others.

Once they’re finished, remove them from the grill and let rest for a few minutes to lock in the juices. These thighs are awesome served with veggie sides like BLT coleslaw, pineapple coleslaw, buffalo ranch potato salad, roasted mustard potatoes, or just your favorite grilled vegetables!
