Spicy Grilled Chicken

This is a great spicy recipe that is juicy and full of flavor. I love using the grill because its hard to mess meat up. I have used both chicken thighs and chicken breasts for this recipe and I prefer the thighs but the breast works fine. This would be great with some Grilled Zucchini and you could even try grilling up some sweet potatoes with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. (I personally have never tried to grill a sweet potato so I would love to hear how it turns out if you try it!)
(This is the Anti-inflammatory version of this dish)

8 boneless skinless chicken thighs, about 2lbs
2 tsp vegetable oil

2 tsp granulated garlic
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp coriander
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder

1- Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
2- Combine rub ingredients in a small bowl.
3- Trim any visible fat off the chicken thigh, rinse, and pat dry with a paper towel. Drizzle oil over chicken and rub it in with your hands. Rub the spice rub into the chicken thighs. Grill for 3-5 minutes on each side.

**Randi's Side Notes**
~Once you feel it is alright to have a little bit of honey try adding this wonderful glaze to it while its cooking.
1/2 Cup Honey
1TBSP Cider Vinegar
For the glaze: while chicken is cooking, warm honey in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Whisk in vinegar. Reserve 2 TBSP glaze and brush the rest on the chicken in the final moments of cooking. Remove chicken from the grill and allow to stand 3-5 minutes. Drizzle reserved glaze over the chicken just before serving.
