Spicy Honey Chicken



       I had two pieces of chicken sitting in my fridge I didnt know what to do with. I wanted something different for dinner tonight, yet easy as well. I started doin a little blog hoppin and was checking out Christys amazing food blog, The Girl Who Ate Everything. I saw this chicken and printed off the recipe. I pretty much had all the seasonings on hand, except for one. I also decided not to use the 'chipotle' chili powder it calls for to keep it on the milder side. It was simple to make, and so delicious! This chicken would be perfect to slice and put on top of a salad! Mmmmm! My little Kelsey ate it up in no time, and trying to get her to eat chicken is like pulling teeth!



Spicy Honey Chicken
(2 servings)

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tsp vegetable oil

RUB:
1 tsp granulated garlic (dried minced garlic)
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder (optional)

GLAZE:
1/4 cup Honey
1/2 Tbs Cider Vinegar

Directions:   Combine all of the spices in a bowl and mix well.
Rinse chicken, and trim off any fat. Pat dry. Drizzle the oil over the chicken and rub it in to coat. Then rub all of the seasoning mix over the chicken. Coat both sides well.
Grill chicken for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
While chicken is grilling, warm honey in a microwavable bowl so its not thick. Add in the vinegar and mix well. Brush the chicken with the glaze during the last minute or so of cooking.  *BE CAREFUL while brushing on the glaze.. it will drip and cause the flames to rise!  If you use an indoor grill, open a window cause it may get a lil smoky *  : )
