Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken

*adapted from nutmegnanny*

Oh my word. This chicken recipe is awesome. The best part of the whole deal is that I made it with pantry items. I didn’t need to run to the store or buy anything fresh. It’s literally just chicken and spices you probably have on hand anyway. Plus, it took bout 15 minutes to make, which is perfect for busy weeknights or lazy weekends.

  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Set broiler to low. Mix spices together and set aside. Mix honey and cider vinegar and set aside.

Un-tuck chicken thighs so they are flat. Cover both sides in dry seasoning and set flat onto sheet pan. Place chicken 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.

Take chicken out of oven and let rest for a few minutes before devouring. You don’t want to burn your mouth with all that hot honey glaze!

*I served this with roasted carrots.
