sticky and spicy indian chicken

i was looking for something different.. something new.. something i had never made before.. then i saw this recipe sticky indian chicken and it sounded right up my alley {i did change it a little, but not much}.. you know when you make something new and after the first bite your so happy you did? well this recipe fits that bill.. pete could not stop talking about it and even shell liked it.. it's very very flavorful.. this recipe would never be accused of being bland.. if your looking for something a little different.. i suggest trying this recipe it really is worth it..

sticky and spicy indian chicken

prep time: 5 minutes
cooking time: 20 minutes
servings: 4


8 boneless/skinless chicken thighs
2 tblsp. graham masala
2 tsp. smokey hot paprika
1 tsp. cayenne {optional}
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup agave {honey}
juice and zest of 1 lemon
olive oil


combine graham masala, paprika, cayenne and salt in a small bowl.. rub it all over the chicken until it's well covered.. heat an iron skillet over medium heat.. add two twirls around the pan with olive oil.. cook the chicken until golden brown on both sides.. about 5-7 minutes each side {depending on their thickness you want your meat to no longer be pink}.. while it's cooking take a small mixing bowl combine the agave, lemon juice and zest..  once the chicken is no longer pink add the lemon glaze to the pan and allow to caramelize and cook down for about 3-5 minutes.. reduce heat and cook another few minutes.. make sure everything is heated all the way through.. remove from heat and serve immediately making sure to get that yummy sauce.. the flavors are wonderful the indian spices are like POW but in a good way.. i served it with some lemony orzo and salad.. but i think it would be really good chopped up and wrapped in naan bread with a light and citrusy cucumber sauce such as tzatziki.. maybe top with sliced radishes and onions.. either way try it.. it's very good..

enjoy and get cook'n!!
