Spiced Chicken Thighs

This meal came together so well with the Garlicky Rice, and Raspberry Parmesan salad. The kids could not get enough of the chicken and rice, though they pretty much passed on the salad (well, with the exception of the raspberries!)


2 Tbs brown sugar
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground red pepper (I omitted this, my kids would have scrunched their noses)
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs


Preheat broiler to high. Combine sugar and next 5 ingredients; stir in 3/8 tsp salt. Sprinkle half the spice mixture over chicken. Place chicken a foil lined cookie sheet or jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 6 minutes. Turn chicken over; sprinkle with remaining spice mixture, broil 6 minutes or until done. Remove chicken; reserve pan drippings. Let chicken stand 5 minutes. Spoon drippings over chicken; serve with Garlicky Rice (see Sides).
