This one was kind of inspired by the Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken which is one of the most popular recipes on the blog.
And since we love Horseradish around here, I decided to start with that......
Sweet and Spicy Chicken Thighs
salt and pepper
You don't have to pre-boil the chicken, but I like to just to make sure it's cooked through AND because I get chicken broth out of it for other dishes.
Once the chicken is boiled, place it on a foil lined baking sheet.
In a small bowl combine horseradish, maple syrup and about a tablespoon of rice vinegar. I didn't really measure, just eyeballed it and went by taste. But I would say I used about a 1/4 cup of horseradish and a little more of that in maple syrup, but just adjust according to what you like.
Season the thighs with garlic powder, salt and pepper, then pour the horseradish, maple syrup and rice vinegar mixture over.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked and the skin is nice and brown. Serve immediately.
I can't wait to experiment again with different sweet and spicy combinations.
