Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs

You know, it’s funny. It’s like the emptier my fridge/freezer/pantry get, the more recipes I follow instead of just making up my own. You’d think it would be the other way around, but I guess I must cook with more ingredients when I’m winging it. I feel so limited in the kitchen before this move, yet I am managing to find a million and one recipes/ideas for which I have all the ingredients.

Today I made these spicy honey-brushed chicken thighs from Cooking Light.  I was short one ingredient, however–cider vinegar. I decided to use balsamic instead, which worked just fine (it’s a really small amount so don’t sweat it). I used bone-in thighs (still skinless) and ended up broiling them about 9 minutes per side. These were great!

We had this with grilled potatoes. I processed a clove of garlic with some salt, pepper, a little rosemary, and olive oil. Tossed the skin-on potato slices in the mixture, and grilled about 8 minutes per side.

I also sauteed some asparagus in a touch of butter, some balsamic vinegar (which I am now officially out of), garlic, salt and pepper, and a tiny bit of thyme.
