Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs

This was a super fast, easy, and tasty dinner…would be perfect for a weeknight (or a Friday night when you’re pretty crispy fried 😉 ).  This was a Cooking Light recipe that I picked on a whim since I needed something quick for dinner this evening.  A definite make again.  We made no changes to the recipe other than to cook it on the grill, and served it with steamed broccoli.

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons 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 or grill chicken 3-5 minutes on each side.

Combine honey and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring well. Brush honey mixture on chicken, then return to grill.  Turn over after one minute and brush chicken with remaining honey mixture. Cook one additional minute, or until chicken is done.
