SPICY CHICKEN THIGHS WITH HONEY

4 Servings
45 min

I have a dinner for you that is gluten free, but others may be interested in this one as well. In this household, we eat a lot of chicken and fish! We have it at least 5 nights a week... extreme? I hope not! We just love it that much, so sometimes I need to get a little creative to keep from having the same thing all of the time.



As you know, I enjoy making up recipes. I created this one a while back. My usual MO is a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I am not one to do much measuring. If you have followed along for any length of time, you know I do this in a lot of aspects of life. Shh... it's not something I am proud of. I just seem to do better on the fly... when I plan, something always comes up, or does not turn out! Now on to the recipe!


4-5 chicken thighs (boneless, skinless)

2 sweet onions

1 green pepper

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 t oregano

1/2 t garlic powder

1/4 paprika

1/4 t cayenne pepper (or more if you like)

2 T honey (or more if you like a sweet taste)

olive oil in bottom of skillet


Coat bottom of pan with olive oil, dice green pepper, onion, place in skillet with chicken thighs. Sprinkle all seasonings over chicken and vegetables, cover and cook until chicken is no longer pink. Serve over rice or alone. It is really that easy, I like the easy dishes after working all day, I want to hurry up and get to my crafting or painting at night, ha!


A variation of this recipe is adding a sweet potato thinly sliced, I also sometimes go crazy with the cayenne, but I tried to keep in perspective not everyone loves the spice like I do. If you want it a little sweeter, add more honey. This recipe can really be what you prefer. I add, taste, then add, then try it until I get what I like. This particular time, I was out of sweet potatoes or they would have been going in this dish tonight. I love them!


Any chicken dishes you would like to share with us? We are all ears... we are always on the look out for something new to try! Although I’m not a food blogger, you can find more gluten free recipes at www.VintageStyleGal.blogspot.com.

Tips

  • You can add thinly sliced sweet potatoes to this recipe, I love them in this dish! I just did not have any on hand.
  • You can add or subtract any of the spices. I tend to be heavy on the cayenne pepper, but I did not for this recipe share.
