Spicy Honey Chicken

The picture above is DH's handiwork...or rather, DHGM (Dear Husband-Grill Master) as he's been requested to be called on my blog :)

I got this one from Leigh -- her recipes are always fantastic!

Since DHGM finally, FINALLY was able to buy a grill (he's so happy!), I included a lot of grill-friendly recipes in this week.

This chicken can be done inside, under the broiler, or outside, on the grill. I love those flexible recipes!
Spicy Honey Chicken


*Note: You can change the "spicy" aspect of this recipe by how much cayenne pepper you put in!)


8 boneless, skinless, chicken thighs (I used chicken thighs, but bone in, and some leftover boneless breasts)

Rub:
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Glaze:
6 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
Directions
- Combine the first six, 'rub' ingredients in a bowl and mix well
- Clean excess fat from chicken pieces and add pieces to bowl of spices, rubbing to coat
- Brush grill surface lightly with olive oil, and grill chicken for a few minutes on each side, until cooked through
- Combine honey and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring until well combined
- Brush mixture onto chicken (both sides) in the final moments of grilling
- Since the glaze is sugar-based, you'l need to turn the heat down so your chicken doesn't burn; leave it on the grill a fw moments to caramelize
- You can also use these steps inside, under your broiler
