Sweet and Spicy Glazed Chicken Thighs

These Sweet and Spicy Glazed Chicken Thighs are moist, tender, and have huge flavor with very little effort. Perfect for fast weeknight dinners!

1/4 cup brown sugar ($0.12)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper ($0.05)
1/2 tsp garlic powder ($0.05)
1/2 tsp paprika ($0.05)
1/2 tsp salt ($0.02)
freshly cracked pepper ($0.05)
1 Tbsp olive oil ($0.16)
1.5 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (4-5 pieces) ($4.49)

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).
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.
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.
