Apricot Glazed Grilled Chicken Recipe

Apricot Glazed Grilled Chicken Recipe

I was looking for something a little different for grilling. This Apricot Glazed Grilled Chicken recipe sounded really good so I decided to give it a try. The apricot flavor blends very well with the rest of the ingredients, and there is very little prep time. The original recipe calls for skinned chicken quarts but I decided to leave the skin on. The skin is not the best for you I guess; but I really like it. If you decide to leave the skin on just be aware you probably will have a lot more flare ups. With Memorial Day coming up this would be an excellent recipe for a cook out. The ginger flavor is quite dominant in the unused portion of the Apricot barbeque sauce-so if you don’t like ginger you may want to leave it out. If you’re looking for a grilling recipe that’s a little bit different, give this Apricot Glazed Grilled Chicken Recipe a try; it’s really good. Enjoy
