Rub a dub dub, 8 thighs in a tub? No.. A bath of spices? No.. not exactly coming together as I imagined. This head cold is really getting to me, which only means I should go home and make a batch of these tonight because they will 100% clear out these clogged sinuses of mine. Thank you spices below.IMG_4707

The easiest recipe ever. Throw mad spices in a bowl. Mix them up. Rub them all over the meat. Oven. Done. Boom. It was for sure spicy, but I know there are people out there that like even more of a kick than I do, so if you are one of those lovers of all things spicy, add more red hot pepper baby!

Thighs are my favorite because they are always so tender and juicy. I ate these so many different ways throughout the week. On a a salad with ranch dressing. With a baked potato and asparagus. On top of Quinoa with black beans and corn. #SoVersatile

FINAL VERDICT: 4 BOMBSbombbombbombbomb


 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 package boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix spices together and set aside.
  2. Mix honey and cider vinegar and set aside.
  3. Open up each thigh so it’s flat. Cover both sides in seasoning, lie flat onto baking sheet. Cooke chicken under a low broil.
  4. Cook for 5-7 minutes on each side. After you cook the 2nd side, flip the thighs again and pour the honey/cider mixture over them.  Place back in the oven under the broiler for a few minutes until the honey starts to thicken up and glaze.
  5. Let chicken rest for 2-3 minutes
  6. If you prefer to bake instead of broil, you can bake the chicken at 400 degrees for about 15 – 20 mins. Make sure to still flip the chicken halfway through. 
  7. ENJOY!
