Honey Lime BBQ Chicken Thighs #SundaySupper

It's time for some easy football food ideas for game day!  It's Missouri Football season in my neck of the woods and we are in for some changes this year.  Our coach, Gary Pinkel, retired to fight lymphoma (we are praying for you, Gary!) and new coach Barry Odom will have his hands full trying to get the offense to help out our amazing defense.  QB Drew Lock has a lot of potential and I am looking forward to seeing him get to display it.  Our defense rocks and hard hitters like Josh Augusta, Rickey Hatley and Terry Beckner Jr. should have their talents put to good use.

My family has been season ticket holders for 32 years and this year is no exception.  We are big tailgate people and we love to plan our menus to match up with our opponents.  (Georgia Hot Bulldogs, anyone?)  Even so, this chicken thigh dish is so good, we can serve it up as an appetizer or the main course, depending on how large the thighs are!  For a little extra goodness, throw those thighs on the smoker!
