LOCATION

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Sprinkle chicken thighs with salt and pepper. In small bowl, combine all remaining ingredients; mix well. Set aside.
  • 2 When grill is heated, place chicken on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear, turning once and brushing with preserves mixture once halfway through cooking time. Discard any remaining preserves mixture.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Set your time for 5 minutes of grilling, then brush on the preserves mixture. If it's applied too soon, the mixture can burn and blacken the chicken.

For an appealing meal, serve the chicken thighs with a favorite green vegetable and cooked rice enhanced with grated carrots and/or sliced green onions.

To broil chicken, place on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using grilling times as a guide, turning once and brushing with preserves mixture as directed.
