- 3 Tablespoons cayenne
- 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Place a greased oven-safe cooling rack on top of a sheet pan. ( Cooking spray is a fine way to grease a cooling rack ).
Combine all spices in a small bowl. Pat the chicken thighs dry, and then rub half of the spice mixture all over them.
