Last night I was looking to try something new. I like to cook chicken most nights. I love chicken thighs. They come out much more tender and flavorful. I decided to go all out and make mashed potatoes and greens beans as well. Scott loved this dinner and requested that I pack all the left overs for his lunch for today. Here are the steps for my recipe and let me know what you think.
In a small bowl I mixed the seasonings chili powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and cumin.
Cover the chicken with the seasonings. Make sure the chicken is dry and add to a skillet with 2 tbsp oil. Sear on each side for 3 to 4 minutes each side.
Transfer the chicken to a baking sheet. Brush on the Honey mixture and bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Flip the chicken over and add the rest of the honey mixture.
