Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MelvinsWifey

This is a simple worknight dish that will totally surprise you with flavor. It's great because every cook I know has all of these ingredients in their cupboards already! I got this recipe from a Cooking Light magazine and I serve it with pan fried broccoli and sweet hawaiian rolls. You can either use chicken breasts, or chicken thighs, and I recommend using boneless and skinless! This has only a medium spicy level, so just increase or decrease red pepper flakes to your taste... and enjoy!

I've done this before, but instead of cider vinegar, I've used balsamic. It was great and easy!!
