This dish is for the Spicy Food Lovers! These chicken pieces are spicy but balanced perfectly with the Honey! I took some chicken, seasoned it with some great spices and baked it on a sheet pan for about 45 minutes. I then tossed the chicken in this sweet and spicy delicious chipotle flavored sauce. The end result was a flavorful, tasty dish with just the right amount of spice! Full recipe below,
