Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken

Yesterday I kind of deviated from my path of posting photos and recipes from this years Healthy Cuisine class.  So to get back on track.
Here is a recipe for Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken.  The recipe really works well.  I found the recipe on Pinterest.  It appears the recipe was originally posted on the following blog:

Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken

1 package boneless skinless chicken thighs (you should get about 8 thighs per package)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons garlic 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 and trim excess fat.
Cover both sides in seasoning, set flat onto sheet pan. When all chicken as been seasoned put under broiler*
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.
* 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.
Trim the chicken well to minimize fat.

Hope you enjoy.
Until next time.
Happy Cooking and Eating
