Spicy Honey Chicken Thighs

I pulled out some chicken thighs yesterday for a new recipe I was going to try and then didn’t use them (we did Chinese take-out for Chinese New Year instead!).  So then I was stuck with the thighs again for tonight and the recipe I was going to try called for a 2 hour marinade.  I didn’t have the time.  

So I found this recipe online at Cooking Light (my go to recipe place right now) and was amazed at how quick it was.   Within 20 minutes dinner was on the table.  The kids loved the chicken, even though it has some kick to it.  A definite keeper!

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
Cooking spray
6 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons 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 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.

  1. Love the idea using red pepper, cumin and honey. Mmmmmmm. Where was this recipe when I was trying to use up all my old chicken thighs a few weeks ago???

  2. Cooking light, search on ingredients 🙂
