Spicy Honey Brushed Chicken Thighs

As I mentioned in the last post, I have packed up all of my cookbooks.  I bought a Cooking Light Magazine in the grocery store earlier in the month and I am really liking this magazine.  So far I have made 8 recipes out of it and only 2 of them were one's I wouldn't make again.

This chicken recipe is one of the 6 that I would definitely make again.  Jordan took a bite and immediately said, "Mmmm...this is really good!"  And it's easy - great for a weeknight meal.  Good and easy, what else can you ask for?!  :)

2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground red pepper (I used red pepper flakes)
8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs (I only used 6)
cooking spray
6 Tablespoons honey
2 tsp cider vinegar


Preheat broiler

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.  Add chicken to bowl; toss to coat.

Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray.  Broil chicken 5 minutes on each side.

Combine honey and vinegar.  Remove chicken from oven and brush each chicken thigh with honey/vinegar mixture.  Broil 1 minute.  Remove chicken from oven and turn over.  Brush chicken with remaining honey mixture.  Broil 1 additional minute or until chicken is done.


I served mine with a salad, green beans and another new recipe called quinoa salad with peaches.  It's really a starch, which is why I had a salad as well.  :)  I'll be posting the quinoa salad recipe soon!  Enjoy!

I make these all the time, with the quinoa peach salad. Always a hit.
