Verdict: Win

I had chicken thighs in the freezer that I needed to use up before I left, so I whipped this up to bring to Dafang's cook out. The recipe calls for the chicken to be broiled, but we grilled the chicken then put on the glaze, and it was great! You know that a recipe is a keeper when DY says we should've made this more often.

Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs adapted from
Yield: Serves 6

2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne
12 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
Cooking spray
1/4 cup honey
2 tsp 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.

(Alternatively, if grilling, combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture evenly onto both sides of the chicken thighs. Drizzle 1/4 cup olive or canola oil onto chicken until all sides are evenly coated. Set aside for 15 minutes before grilling.

In a separate small bowl combine honey and vinegar, stirring well. Brush chicken with this glaze while grilling, or simply pour over the finished grilled chicken.)
