With the holidays around the corner for a lot of people it means baking, baking and more baking. BUT, let’s not forget that we also have people to feed! As much as some would love to live off holiday cookies, (myself included), it really isn’t the best idea.
I bet lots of people are looking for quick and easy dinner ideas, and here’s one… today I bring you one of my favourite recipes for chicken thighs: Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken Thighs. Not only are these chicken thighs extremely tasty, (sweet & spicy, need I say more?) but they are super easy too! And will be all cooked up and ready faster than you can say gingerbread.
Now, take a break from your holiday baking frenzy and make some of these for dinner.
Spicy Honey Brushed Chicken Thighs
Recipe adapted from: Cooking Light
8 chicken thighs (with bones and skin)
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
6 tbsp honey
1 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
cooking spray (for coating the pan)
Line a baking sheet with tin foil, and spray foil with cooking spray.
Combine the salt and spices in a bowl and rub on both sides of the chicken. Place the chicken on the baking sheet and broil for 5 minutes on each side.
While chicken is broiling, combine the honey and vinegar in another boil. Once the chicken has done both sides, remove from the oven and brush with the honey mixture; be sure to coat it very well! Broil for another minute or two. Remove the chicken from the oven once again and flip it over, brush this side with the remaining honey mixture and broil for an addition one to two minutes.
Check to be sure chicken is done, if not broil for another minute, be sure to watch it very carefully!
Enjoy this tasty dish, it’s positively perfect.
