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.
