IngredientsIngredients

  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp paprika

  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard (prepared)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

DirectionsDirections

Move oven rack to top position and preheat for broiling if necessary. Line a baking sheet with foil (not parchment paper) and lightly spray with cooking spray. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil and dry spices and rub evenly all over chicken. Place chicken on prepared baking sheet and broil in oven for 6 minutes. Turn chicken pieces over and broil 6 more minutes. While chicken broils, in a small bowl whisk together honey, Dijon and yellow mustards, vinegar, and lemon juice. Remove chicken from oven and brush top sides with honey sauce; broil 1 to 2 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Brush individual servings with remaining sauce as desired and serve.
