Spicy Honey Chicken

adapted from: Our Best Bites  


8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 2 lbs.)

   (thighs taste better in this recipe than breasts)

2 tsp. vegetable oil


Glaze:

1/2 c. honey

1 Tbl. cider vinegar


Rub:

2 tsp. granulated garlic

2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. coriander

1 tsp. kosher salt

1 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. chipotle chili powder


Preheat grill to medium-high heat or about 400 degrees.  Combine the rub ingredients in a small bowl.  Trim any visible fat off the chicken thighs, rinse and pat dry with a paper towel.  Drizzle oil over chicken and rub it in with your hands.  Rub the spice rub into the chicken thighs.  Grill for 3-5 minutes on each side.  For the glaze: while chicken is cooking warm honey in the microwave for about 15 seconds.  Whisk in vinegar.  Reserve 2 Tbl. glaze and brush the rest on the chicken in the final moments of cooking.  Remove chicken from the grill and allow to stand 3-5 minutes.  Drizzle reserved 2 Tbl. of glaze over the chicken while it's standing.  Serves: 4-6.
