Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken

"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!!

    This was very easy to make, but the tastes just didn't meld together well for me. It seemed they fought each other. I really expected to love this, but it just wasn't what I expected. I used 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, and had to cook them twice as long as posted to get them done....so the juices ran clear. Sorry this wasn't more to my taste....it is really easy to make!

    This was a very good chicken recipe. The slight heat and sweetness made for a different kind of chicken. Easy to put together. Will make again!!!!!!!!!!

    The spice mix certainly has a kick to it and the honey glaze tempered it beautifully. I quartered a whole 1.5K chicken and made up a 1.5 quantity of the spice mix which just gave me enough to coast all 4 quarters. Highly recommend lining your baking dish, will make cleaning up a breeze. I put the tray into a 175C fan forced oven (skin side down) for 15 minutes and drizzled half the glaze over and returned to the oven for a further 15 minutes and turned the pieces and drizzled the remaining glaze over the pieces and baked for a further 15 minutes - the result was a moist, bity with a hint of sweetness and a crispy skin piece of chicken. Thank you Melvin'sWifey for a recipe that I would like to try with other cuts of meat, made for Everyday is a Holiday tag game.
