Honey & Spice Chicken

2 tsp. garlic powder or granulated
2 t chili powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. salt, coarse grind if you like
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. cayenne red pepper

8-10 boneless skinless chicken thighs or 4-5 breasts
1/4 C Honey
1 TBS Rice Wine Vinegar

Rinse and dry chicken pieces on paper towels.  Using 1 TBS of olive oil, rub into chicken.  Mix spices and spread over chicken.  I mix it in with my hands to coat more evenly.  Pour honey into small bowl.  Warm for 10 seconds in the microwave, then mix with vinegar.

Grill chicken a few minutes each side.  Brush honey mixture for the final minutes of cooking, coating both sides.  The honey can burn quickly or cause flareups, so watch carefully.  Remove from grill and serve.

If desired, drizzle last bit of honey over chicken before serving.

(I found the recipe here.  I have made it several times.  Also delicious as a  salad with  mangoes & avocado. )
