Spicy Honey Chicken Thighs

8 chicken thighs (no bones and no skin)
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
6 tbsp honey
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
cooking spray (for coating the pan)


Line a baking sheet with tin foil, and spray foil with cooking spray.

Combine the salt and spices in a bowl and rub on both sides of the chicken. Place the chicken on the baking sheet and broil for 5 minutes on each side. (We usually grill it on the BBQ)

While chicken is broiling, combine the honey and vinegar in another boil. Once the chicken has done both sides, remove from the oven and brush with the honey mixture; be sure to coat it very well! Broil for another minute or two. Remove the chicken from the oven once again and flip it over, brush this side with the remaining honey mixture and broil for an addition one to two minutes.

Check to be sure chicken is done, if not broil for another minute, be sure to watch it very carefully!
