A very healthy and fast way to eat chicken.
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground red pepper
  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • Cooking spray
  • 6 TBLS honey
  • 2 tsp cider vinegar
  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Add chicken to bowl; toss to coat. (String feedback that it is better to sprinkle on both sides and massage/press it onto the chicken than just coat/toss)
  4. Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil chicken 5 minutes on each side.
  5. Combine honey and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring well. Remove chicken from oven; brush 1/4 cup honey mixture on chicken. Broil 1 minute. Remove chicken from oven and turn over. Brush chicken with remaining honey mixture. Broil 1 additional minute or until chicken is done.

If you brush additional honey sauce after you broil the chicken, make sure that you don’t use contaminated sauce, so plan ahead.
