Spicy Honey ChickenIngredients:

  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs, about 2 lbs
  • Glaze
  • 2 t granulated garlic
  • 2 t chili powder
  • 1/2 t onion powder
  • 1/2 t coriander
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1/2 C Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Cider or Balsamic Vinegar


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees or preheat gas grill or prepare briquets for grilling
  • Place chicken thighs in Instant Pot. Do not add liquids, the chicken will produce plenty of broth for the Spicy Honey Sauce.
  • Place lid on and press the POULTRY button.
  • When Instant Pot signals that the chicken is finished cooking, remove lid and place chicken on a baking sheet. Then place chicken in oven or on the grill for 15 minutes or until skin is crispy.
  • Remove chicken from oven or grill and set aside in a baking dish to keep warm.
  • While chicken is in the oven or on the grill, strain the chicken broth into a bowl, place broth back into the pot, push SAUTE button.
  • Add honey, Balsamic or Cider vinegar and seasonings to the chicken broth. Stirring occasionally, simmer the sauce  until it thickens and coats a spoon like syrup, may take from 10-15 minutes.
  • After sauce has thickened, turn pot off, adjust seasonings to your taste and pour the sauce over the chicken, coating each piece evenly.

We serve with multi-grain rice and a salad or vegetable.
