Serves: 8 servings
  • For the Spice Rub:
  • 2 tsp. Chili Powder (if you don't like heat, use 1 tsp. or more if you like it spicy!)
  • 1 Tbsp Paprika
  • 1.5 tsp. Ground Cumin
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • ¼ tsp. Ground Black Pepper
  • For the Sauce:
  • ½ cup Lakanto Sweetner
  • 4 T Hot Water
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 8 Boneless, Skinless, Chicken Thighs
  • Green onions (optional, for garnish)
  1. Preheat your oven to 375.
  2. Place a deep skillet on the stove using medium-high heat.  Place the coconut oil in the skillet and let it heat up.
  3. While the skillet and oil heat, mix the chili powder, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Rub the chicken thighs with the spices.
  4. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes on each side.
  5. Make the sweet sauce by dissolving the Lakanto in the hot water, until it is a thick, sweet sauce.  Add the Apple Cider Vinegar and mix well.
  6. Remove the chicken from the skillet and place on a paper towel.  Blot to remove excess oil, then place on a prepared baking dish.
  7. Pour the sweet sauce over the chicken, and bake for 25-30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  8. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes.
  9. Garnish with chopped green onions and enjoy!
