Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken

The other day I asked John what we should do for the night. He answered, "Sit on our butts and relax". Basically do nothing, which is always a good option after long work days. I said I wanted to bake something. To him that means work but to me, that means relaxing. Creating something in the kitchen is fun! I have so many ideas I want to try out, so many creations to be made. 

What do you do to relax? 

While this was a little too spicy for Spencer, John and I liked this glaze. Really gave plain ole chicken some flair.

1 pkg, boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. chili pepper
2 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup honey
2 TBLS. apple cider vinegar

Mix all dry spices together and set aside.

Mix honey and vinegar together and set aside.

Un-tuck chicken thighs so they are flat. Cover both sides with dry spices and set flat onto a cookie sheet. 

Put thighs under broiler on low. Cook 5 -7 minutes on ones side, then flip and cook for another 5 -7 minutes on second side.

Remove from oven, flip again and baste with honey/vinegar mixture. Be sure to really coat the chicken well all over. Add to oven again and let cook under broiler until honey/vinegar coating starts to thicken and glaze. It may smoke a little but that's normal. 

Remove from oven and let set a few minutes before serving.

Thank yo for this recipe, it is my favorite chicken recipe! I make this often for my family, 2-3 times a month. I also make up a double batch of the spice as needed, keeping it in a jar so that I have it handy. So much yum in this one! The extra pan sauce goes over mashed potatoes quite nicely.
