Description

My Glazed Pork Chops recipe has been viral for several years because it’s ridiculously easy, super tasty, and the sweet and spicy glaze helps keep the pork chops nice and moist. While I’ve often told people that the glaze works just as well on chicken, I had yet to showcase that particular combo on the blog.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1.5 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (45 pieces)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • freshly cracked pepper

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper (10-15 cranks of a pepper mill).
  2. Place the chicken thighs on a cutting board and pat dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture over the chicken, coating both sides liberally.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium. Once hot, add the olive oil and swirl to coat. Add the coated chicken and cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and the brown sugar has turned into a deep brown glaze. Serve hot.
