Sweet and Spicy Chicken Thighs - A Bountiful Love

Sweet and Spicy Chicken Thighs

I finally feel like it's fall. It has been crazy hot lately, I wonder if we will ever feel the "fall weather" or at least wear the boots! And since it cooled off already, I can now use the oven ..because warming up my small kitchen is actually not delightful. This sweet and spicy chicken though is delightful and mmm..mmm.good! Just the right amount of sweet and perfect amount of spicy.

8 pieces of boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/2 cup honey
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp chili powder

Mix all the spices together in a small bowl. Mix the honey and vinegar together.

Prepare your baking sheet. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Spread the spice mixture all over the chicken pieces. Making sure all the crevices are covered too!

Broil the chicken on low for 7 minutes. Then flip and cook for another 7 minutes. Flip the chicken again and baste with the honey mixture. Again make sure that even the crevices are covered with honey. Put the chicken back in the broiler and broil for another 5-8 minutes, until the honey is thickened.

Let it cool and smell that goodness! You can serve it with rice or buttered orzo.

Do what I did, I made a lettuce wrap! Put the diced sweet and spicy chicken recipe on top of romaine lettuce, add chopped tomatoes and drizzle with low fat ranch and sriracha sauce.

Don't forget to pin and share!

  1. Good Morning!

    Over the past few weeks, I’ve been praying about a way that I could encourage other bloggers who have been encouraging me. Through your ministry, posts, words, comments, and faithfulness—your life has been a blessing to mine, and I wanted others to know about you!

    So, I compiled a list of those bloggers who I’ve personally found to be the MOST INSPIRATIONAL on the web.

    You are ONE Of these bloggers - in my estimation!

    You can find the link to the list where you are featured here: http://www.melanieredd.com/the-100-most-inspiring-christian-blogs-on-the-web/

    I’ve also signed up to get your emails, and tried to follow you on your social media outlets!

    I pray that God will encourage you today through these simple acts~
