In a bowl combine the olive oil, juice from the lemon, zest from half the lemon, garlic, paprika, thyme, salt, and pepper.
Add to a large ziploc bag and add the chicken thighs. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, overnight is even better.
Grilling: Preheat the grill on high. Remove the chicken from the marinade letting excess drip off. Grill on high for 4 minutes on each side, keeping the grill closed.
Broiling: Preheat the broiler. Remove the chicken from the marinade, letting excess drip off, and place on a baking sheet covered with foil and sprayed with cooking spray. Broil for 5 minutes per side or until cooked through.
