So simple, but such great flavor! I've also used chipotle pepper in place of the paprika, and it's delicious. I usually bake this chicken, because my broiler seems to burn the glaze before the chicken is cooked through. INGREDIENTS: 1 package boneless skinless chicken thighs (you should get about 8 thighs per package) 2 teaspoons smoked paprika (regular paprika works well too but smoked brings more flavor) 2 teaspoons garlic powder 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (use less if you don't like heat) 1 teaspoon chili powder 1/2 cup honey 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar DIRECTIONS: 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* (I put mine on low just so I don't worry about burning the chicken) 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. Take chicken out of oven and let rest for a few minutes before devouring. You don't want to burn your mouth with all that hot honey glaze! * 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.

I think I'll stick to the paprika for the first try, sounds really good!
