Spicy Honey Chicken – Our Best Bites
2 t vegetable oil
2 t granulated garlic2 t chili powder1/2 t onion powder1/2 t coriander1 t kosher salt1 t cumin1/2 t chipotle chili powder
Glaze:1/2 C Honey1T Cider Vinegar
Combine the rub spices in bowl and mix well.
Use kitchen shears (or a pair of clean scissors) to trim off any excess fat from the chicken pieces. Pat dry. 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! Grill chicken for 3-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through.
While chicken is cooking, warm honey in the microwave so it's not so thick. 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'm gonna warn you that this can make a hot mess, literally. It's sugar, and it's gonna drip. But the smelly smoke is worth it for a minute or two. Just leave your grill on for a few minutes after the chicken is done to burn off any excess glaze. It's totally worth it once you taste this stuff.
If you don't have a bbq, try it on an indoor grill pan or use your broiler. Just be sure to open a window in case you burn your glaze!
*I actually cut the cooked chicken into bite sized pieces, poured the glaze over it and let it sit in there for a few minutes before serving - soooo delish!!
**I am so sorry I forgot to take a picture! This is good enough that I'll be making it again soon - so I'll post a pic then:)
