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.
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 BOMBS
- 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
- Mix spices together and set aside.
- Mix honey and cider vinegar and set aside.
- Open up each thigh so it’s flat. Cover both sides in seasoning, lie flat onto baking sheet. Cooke chicken under a low broil.
- 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.
- Let chicken rest for 2-3 minutes
- 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.
