Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken

29 Jun

If you follow many other recipe blogs, you have more than likely seen this recipe before because it is one of Cooking Light’s most popular chicken recipes. So you might ask why I am reposting it, but on the off chance that you haven’t seen it, I want to pass it along because it really is good enough to warrant a repost. Trust me when I say that it’s on all the blogs for a reason. And it seems like a great time to post a simple and delicious barbecue recipe right before a holiday known for its fantastic cookouts, right?

Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
6 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

Preheat grill.

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Add chicken to bowl; toss to coat. Place chicken on hot grill coated with cooking spray. Grill chicken 5 minutes on each side.

Combine honey and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring well. Brush 1/4 cup honey mixture on chicken. Grill 1 minute. Turn chicken over and brush chicken with remaining honey mixture. Grill 1 additional minute or until chicken is done.

6 servings.

    I know some fellows who developed recipes for the Cooking Light cookbook and was asked to review it when it came out. I had never heard of this recipe but loved how easy it looked and it sounded good.

    Good? I tasted a piece of the thigh meat after taking it out of the oven. I then proceeded to stand over the stove and eat at least two (probably three) of them before realizing I was going to finish off dinner if I wasn’t careful.

    This is THE easiest and best thing I think I make. My recipe is done in the broiler but I’ve grilled them too. And still want to eat half a batch before anyone else notices they’re done. :)
