Sweet & Spicy Chicken Thighs

Apologies that there’s no picture here – we were STARVING so as soon as these babies came out of the oven, we ate! This is a Cooking Light recipe and is easy and quick. I was out of regular chili powder, so I used Medium Hot chili powder from Penzeys. Because of this, I cut the cayenne in half. It was still SPICY. If you like things inferno hot (like my sister!) – use a full 1/2 tsp of cayenne. Otherwise, go for a 1/4 tsp or less… I also needed to cook the chicken a few minutes longer than the recipe called for. My changes are noted below, but if you’d like to see the original recipe, you can go here.


Sweet & Spicy Chicken Thighs

2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons chili powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
Cooking spray
6 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1. Preheat broiler.

2. Combine first 6 ingredients (garlic powder through red pepper) in a large bowl. Add chicken to bowl; toss to coat. Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil chicken 7 minutes on each side.

3. Combine honey and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring well. Remove chicken from oven; brush 1/4 cup honey mixture on chicken. 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.
