Spicy Honey Chicken

I love to grill chicken even in the winter. And I try to get The Fireman to grill enough chicken so we can have leftovers the next night. There is nothing better than BBQ'd chicken the the next night or maybe that is just the mom talking that doesn't have to cook. Make some rice and some veggies and dinner is served!!

I have seen this all over Pinterest but it originates from Cooking Light. I got my recipe from Our Best Bites. Amazing Blog, Go check them out!

Spicy Honey Chicken
by Our Best Bites
recipe adapted from Cooking Light

8 boneless skinless chicken thighs, about 2lbs (I used chicken breasts Its what The Fireman wanted)
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons granulated garlic (you can sub 1 teaspoon garlic powder here)
2 teaspoons chili powder (I used 1/2 tsp)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder 
1/2 cup Honey
1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar

 Combine the rub spices in bowl and mix well.

 Use kitchen shears to trim off any excess fat from the chicken pieces. Pat dry. Drizzle oil over chicken and rub in with your hands to lightly coat all the pieces.
 Then toss chicken with the spice rub to coat all sides well. Use your hands and get in there!
 While chicken is cooking, warm honey in the microwave so it's not so thick. Add the vinegar and combine well. Reserve 2 Tablespoons of the honey glaze for later after the chicken has cooked to pour on right before serving. (not necessary) Take the rest and brush on chicken (both sides) in the final moments of grilling.

 Grill chicken for 3-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through.

 Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing into for dinner
