GG’s Thoughts: I promise we do eat more than just roasted cauliflower! However, it was too good of a match to not pair with this Spiced Honey Glazed Chicken that I’m sure you’ve seen floating around on Pinterest from Nutmeg Nanny. The ingredients were all things I already had on hand, so it was a quick meal to throw together without needing a big shopping list at the grocery store. Sweet and spicy, this chicken is a tasty main dish that goes very well with a (very obvious) favorite side of ours, Roasted Chili-Lime Cauliflower.

Roasted Chili-Lime Cauliflower (Original recipe found here.)
1 package boneless skinless chicken thighs (you should get about 8 thighs per package)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Mix spices together and set aside. Mix honey and cider vinegar and set aside.
Un-tuck chicken thighs so they are flat. Cover both sides in seasoning, set flat onto sheet pan. When all chicken as been seasoned put under broiler.
Cook for 5-7 minutes on one side and flip. Cook for a 5-7 minutes on other side. Flip again and then baste the chicken in honey/cider mixture. Be sure to really get the chicken covered. Add to oven again and let it cook under the broiler for a few minutes until the honey starts to thicken up and glaze. It may smoke a little but this is completely normal. Remove from oven when brown and crispy on top.
* If you have a gas oven and your broiler is at the bottom you can bake the chicken at 400 degrees for about 15 – 20 mins.
