Chattanooga Sweet Heat Chicken

This is a recipe I created a couple of months ago. It definitely gets Bobbi Jo’s drool-worthy stamp of approval. It is now one of our favorite chicken recipes.

2 tablespoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 teaspoon Carolina Reaper flakes (Or your favorite hot pepper flakes)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together and store in a glass jar.

4 chicken thighs
2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup Honey
2 tablespoons hot sauce

Pat chicken thighs dry with a paper towel.
Brush olive oil over both sides of the chicken.
Shake rub over both sides of chicken.
With gloves on, rub spices into chicken.

Cover with foil.
Heat grill for 10 minutes.
Place chicken skin side down.
Cook for 5-6 minutes on each side.
Then reduce the grill heat so chicken can slowly cook for 20 -25 minutes.
Flip chicken half way through.
Once it reaches an internal temp of 165 degrees F it is done.
Remove from grill.
Drizzle glaze over chicken.
Brush in with basting brush.
Let sit for 5 minutes and then serve.
