Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken
This delicious honey spiced glazed chicken is made with chicken thighs and cooked under the broiler. It’s sweet, spicy and oh so delicious!
yield: 8 CHICKEN THIGHS prep time: 10 minutes cook time: 15 minutes per batch total time: 25 minutes per batch
1 package boneless skinless chicken thighs (you should get about 8 thighs per package)
2 teaspoons smoked paprika (regular paprika works well too but smoked brings more flavor)
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (use less if you don’t like heat)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Mix spices together and set aside.
Mix honey and cider vinegar and set aside.
Un-tuck chicken thighs so they are flat. Cover both sides in seasoning, set flat onto sheet pan. When all chicken as been seasoned put under broiler* (I put mine on low just so I don’t worry about burning the chicken)
Cook for 5-7 minutes on one side and flip. Cook for a 5-7 minutes on other side. Flip again and then baste the chicken in honey/cider mixture. Be sure to really get the chicken covered. Add to oven again and let it cook under the broiler for a few minutes until the honey starts to thicken up and glaze. It may smoke a little but this is completely normal.
Take chicken out of oven and let rest for a few minutes before devouring. You don’t want to burn your mouth with all that hot honey glaze!
* If you have a gas oven and your broiler is at the bottom you can bake the chicken at 400 degrees for about 15 – 20 mins.
