  • 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

  • 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.
