First I'd like to introduce myself and say what a great idea I think this community is! I am so excited to try some of the recipes below. I'm by no means a chef, but I enjoy cooking quite a bit, and am always looking for different recipes to make or play with!
Anyway, I would hate for this post to not include anything worthwhile, so here's a favorite recipe of mine, originally found from Cooking Light. It's quite simple and full of flavor.
Spicy Honey Chicken
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs (I usually use boneless, skinless chicken breast & this works just as well)
- Cooking spray
- 6 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Add chicken to bowl; toss to coat. Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil chicken 5 minutes on each side.
Combine honey and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring well. Remove chicken from oven; brush 1/4 cup honey mixture on chicken. Broil 1 minute. Remove chicken from oven and turn over. Brush chicken with remaining honey mixture. Broil 1 additional minute or until chicken is done.And for those who enjoy grilling, this recipe works just as well on the grill!
