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.
