Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 /12 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked salt can use a bit more if you prefer things a bit salty
  • Liquid smoke optional
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  • Cut chicken thighs into bite sized pieces.
  • Toss chicken in olive oil until pieces are lightly coated.
  • Mix together the spices.
  • Sprinkle spices generously over chicken until well coated. (I never use all of this mixture)
  • Place chicken in a plastic bag and let marinate in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight. (I've gotten away with only 1 hour but the longer the better)
  • Arrange chicken bites on a grill pan.
  • Sprinkle with liquid smoke.
  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Mix together honey, worcestershire sauce and apple cider vinegar.
  • Brush mixture over chicken.
  • Roast for 5 minutes.
  • Brush again with honey mixture.
  • Roast for another 5-7 minutes and brush again with honey mixture.
  • Turn the oven to broil and broil for a few minutes until chicken is done and the honey has caramelized a bit. (keep a close eye on it)
  • Serve.
