Spicy Honey-Maple Glazed Chicken

There's not much of a narrative here, but suffice it to say (one hopes...) that this chicken is well-seasoned with a bit of a spicy kick, nicely complemented by a gentle sweetness. Plus, the chicken is incredibly moist and can be on the table in under 15 minutes.

Spicy Honey-Maple Glazed Chicken (adapted)

2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
Cooking spray
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Preheat broiler. Line a broiler pan or baking sheet with foil coated with cooking spray.

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, add chicken to bowl and toss to coat. Place chicken on the prepared pan and broil for 5 minutes. Flip, and broil for another 5 minutes.

Combine honey, maple syrup and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring well. Remove chicken from oven; brush half of honey-maple mixture on chicken. Broil 1 minute. Remove chicken from oven and flip. Brush chicken with remaining honey mixture. Broil 1 additional minute or until chicken is done.

Serves 4 (2 thighs per person)

Looks great...and I always love a dish with maple syrup in it.
