Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs

Oooh, man.  These suckers are good!  I found this recipe while searching for a quick, easy recipe for boneless, skinless chicken thighs, after returning from our Illinois trip to a practically empty pantry, and I can't imagine anything much more simple.  You just toss the thighs in the spices, broil them, brush them with a honey-vinegar mix, and POW!!  Easy dinner, super-tasty, compliments from Matt, added to my permanent rotation.

You just mix up 2 teaspoons each of garlic powder and chili powder, 1 teaspoon each of salt, ground cumin, and paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon of ground red pepper.  

Toss the chicken thighs in all that spicy goodness.

Lay out the chicken thighs in a greased pan, and broil them on each side for 6 minutes.

Whisk together 6 tablespoons of honey with 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar (or, follow the original directions and use 2 teaspoons of cider vinegar).  

Brush the chicken thighs with the honey-vinegar mixture, then broil for 1 minute.  Repeat for the other side.

To reiterate: some spices (which you could easily switch up), cooking time of 18 minutes, and a quick bath in honey and vinegar.  I defy you to find an easier, tastier, and quicker meaty dish!
