Spicey Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs

Here is another "light" recipe. It is my take on one I found online. I am sure you can use chicken breasts, but we just love thighs. They are so tender, moist and full of flavor.

2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 ground red pepper
6-8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
olive oil
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

Combine the first six ingredients. Drizzle the chicken thighs with a little olive oil. Rub or sprinkle the seasoning mixture on both sides of chicken.

Combine honey and vinegar.

Grill chicken 12-15 minutes on both sides. After a few minutes of grilling, brush the honey-vinegar mixture on the chicken. When the chicken is turned, brush other side with honey-vinegar mixture. Chicken is done when a thermometer reads 180 degrees.

It was good with a green salad and corn on the side.
