Spicy Sweet Chicken

Another awesome recipe I made this week, thanks to Pinterest (love Pinterest). But I tried this on the grill and I don't think I will do that again. These were coated with spices, which was yummy, yet cooking didn't go as great (catching fire, yeah no good). So I will do this in the oven or broiler, like the recipe recommends. They still turned out really yummy on the grill, it just seemed difficult to cook the inside without the outside burning too much and I ended up putting in the oven to finish cooking. Also, if you prefer breasts, instead of thighs, go for it! I did use thighs because we always have chicken breasts and I wanted a change. Here it is, such great flavor!

Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs
adapted from Cooking Light 3/07

2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 shake of 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.

I made green beans with bacon, onion, pepper, and little chunks of sweet potato and it was fantastic as well. It was a great compliment to this meal. Pineapple would be good with this too. There you have it. Put this on your meal schedule!
