Success
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.

Variation
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.
