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)
6 Tablespoons honey
2 tsp cider vinegar
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!
