Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken



Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken

Ingredients:

2 large skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 teaspoons olive oil

Rub:

2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder

Glaze:

1/2 cup honey
1 Tablespoon cider vinegar

Directions:

Combine the Rub spices in a medium sized zip top plastic bag and mix well.

Remove any excess fat from the chicken pieces. Cut them in half and pat them dry.
Drizzle the olive oil over the chicken pieces and rub the good with your hands to coat all the pieces.
Toss the chicken pieces into the bag along with the spices.  Press out most of the air, zip the top closed and work the chicken and spices until all of the chicken pieces are covered thoroughly.
At this point you can refrigerate them to marinate for a while or cook them.

Grill the chicken on both sides until cooked through.
While the chicken is cooking, warm the honey in the microwave so it's not so thick.  Add the vinegar and mix thoroughly. 

Once the chicken is cooked, brush the chicken with the honey mixture.  Watch it closely, turn the chicken and repeat on the other side.    It will smoke and make a mess of your grill, but trust me it is so worth it.

I sliced up some yellow squash, zucchini and onions, tossed them with some olive oil and Mrs. Dash and grilled them along with the chicken for a tasty side dish.

....and that's What's Cooking at Cathy's ~ Enjoy!

About Me

My photo

My career is in IT.  Cooking and photography are among a few of my hobbies. In my spare time, which is most weekends I tie on my apron and exercise my creativity by trying new recipes and adapting them to my tastes. I also have a passion for photography that I incorporate by taking photographs to go along with the recipes I post on my blog.  
I also enjoy travel, both near and abroad. Meeting new people, new experiences and cultures and oh, not to mention the food! I hope you enjoy my blog.
