Spicy Honey Chicken

I found this recipe from another blog called The Girl Who Ate Everything. She has quite a few recipes that I want to try. This one was fantastic!!! It was better than I was even expecting! Definitely one that needs to be tried! I know I will be trying it again next week!

Spicy Honey Chicken


8 boneless skinless chicken thighs (or 3 large chicken breasts)

2 tsp vegetable oil


2 tsp granulated garlic (I used garlic salt)

2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp coriander

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder


1/2 c honey

1 Tbsp cider vinegar


Combine the rub spices in bowl and mix well.

Use kitchen shears to trim off any excess fat from the chicken pieces. Pat dry. Drizzle oil over chicken and rub in with your hands to lightly coat all the pieces. Then toss chicken with the spice rub to coat all sides well. Use your hands and get in there! Grill chicken for 3-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through.

While chicken is cooking, warm honey in the microwave for 20 seconds so it’s not so thick. Add the vinegar and combine well. Reserve 2T honey glaze for later. Take the rest and brush on chicken (both sides) in the final moments of grilling.

Glaze again right before you you serve and enjoy this wonderful, tasty meal!
