Quick BBQ Chicken Thighs with Mashed Potatoes

Quick BBQ Chicken Thighs with Mashed Potatoes


Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: 6 oz. chicken and 1/2 cup potatoes)

We speed up this cookout classic by using boneless chicken thighs and a hot grill pan. You’ll be amazed out how quickly a homemade barbecue sauce comes together; it's great for making just what you need (no half-empty bottle lurking in your fridge) with less added sugar and salt than store-bought. Look for refrigerated mashed potatoes in the prepared foods aisle of the supermarket, usually with the refrigerated fresh pastas. Besides mashed potatoes, you could also serve the chicken with grilled corn on the cob or roasted sweet potato wedges.

  • 1 cup unsalted ketchup
