Apricot-Glazed Grilled Chicken

Here is a simple chicken dish that can be made pretty quickly even when the weather is cold.  Apricot-Glazed Grilled Chicken probably tastes better in the summer when you can prepare this over an outdoor grill but it’s still a pretty good dish on an indoor grill.  I used my beloved Griddler by Cuisinart but any grill pan will work.  (And let’s be real – if you don’t have a grill pan, a skillet will work just fine!)

A mixture of apricot preserves, vinegar, olive oil, and garlic is brushed over chicken as it cooks making for a tasty, slightly sweet glaze.  I used chicken tenderloins but you can use any chicken you like (the recipe uses chicken breasts, thighs, and drumsticks).  Serve this with any vegetable, starch, or salad greens you like to make for a light and healthy meal.

The ingredients:

Combine apricot preserves, vinegar, olive oil, and garlic in a small bowl and mix well.

Cook one side of the chicken on a grill pan and turn over.  Coat the cooked side with apricot glaze.  When opposite side has cooked, flip the chicken over and apply glaze to the other side.  I flipped the chicken over one more time to make sure all sides with glaze were cooked.

Consider using this glaze with bite-sized chicken or on skewers for the little ones or as an appetizer.
