Spicy Honey - Glazed Chicken Thighs

Cassie *


This chicken is wonderfully sweet and spicy..not too sweet..just right with the spices. It kind of reminds me of the Chinese chicken on a stick. My family loves it..kept asking when I would make it again.

I used thighs, I am sure you could use breasts. I like thighs, because they are always moist and to me more flavorful. Also, cheaper.

I hope you try this chicken, and like it as much as we do.

How to Make Spicy Honey - Glazed Chicken Thighs


  1. If only making 1/2 the amount of chicken, cut the amount of spices in half.

    In a large bowl; combine the first 6 ingredients.
  2. Add chicken to bowl; toss to coat well. I left it sit in the spices for a good 2 hours.
  3. Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray.

    Broil chicken 15 - 20 minutes on each side.
  4. Combine honey and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring well.
  5. Remove chicken from oven; brush each thigh with the honey mixture, place back under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until starts to get a golden brown, making sure not to burn.

    Repeat on the other side. I then place on a platter and let it rest a few minutes, then if any glaze is left, brush each thigh again, right before serving.
  6. They are delicious..Enjoy!
