Spicy Honey Chicken

I tried this chicken recipe on a SUPER hot day this summer, and this was the perfect accompaniment. It was fairly simple, too, thanks to www.the-girl-who-ate-everything.com!

Spicy Honey Chicken
spicy goodness!

8 boneless skinless chicken thighs, about 2lbs (I used breasts)
2 tsp canola oil

2 tsp granulated garlic (I used garlic powder)
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 (found in the spice aisle, look close)

1/2 cup Honey
1T Cider Vinegar

1) Combine the rub spices in bowl and mix well.
2) Use kitchen shears to trim off any excess fat from the chicken pieces. Pat dry. 
3) 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! 
4) Grill chicken for 3-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through.
5) While chicken is cooking, warm honey in the microwave so it's not so thick. 
6) Add the vinegar and combine well. Reserve 2T honey glaze for later. Take the rest and brush on chicken (both sides) in the final moments of grilling.

I used a stove-top grill and these turned out perfect. The website suggested making a spicy honey chicken salad with a citrus vinaigrette.
