Sticky, gooey, and sweet apricot chicken loaded with flavor from a simple combination of seasonings mixed with apricot preserves. This chicken is simple to prepare making it a wonderful choice for a weeknight or any type of meal.
Serves 4 - 6
Apricot, Chicken, Chicken Thighs
skin on, bone-in chicken thighs
excess skin from underside removed
crushed red pepper
Preheat oven 425°
Lightly oil a 9x13 baking dish. Optional, but this makes cleanup a little easier.
In a large bowl, combine the apricot sauce ingredients.
Add the chicken thighs into the bowl and coat with sauce. Reserve leftover sauce.
Place the thighs skin side down into the baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.
Flip thighs over and spoon leftover sauce over the top of the thighs and bake for another 25 - 30 minutes. I like mine dark and a little charred on top so I go the full 30 minutes.
If using regular soy sauce, taste the sauce without the salt first and then add salt to your taste.
