This is great on pork tenderloin or ribs. If you wish, the chicken can be partially cooked in the microwave. Serve with a green salad or baked potato, if desired. This is also good at room temperature, but you will ned lots of napkins! Sweet and savory, but not too spicy for kids.

  • Brush the skin side of the chicken pieces with the glaze mixture (you will use about 1/2 of the mixture) and return to oven; reduce temperature to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) and bake for another 1/2 hour. Brush with remaining glaze mixture just before serving.

I have used this recipe for years. One of my favorite ways is to use orange marmalade instead of apricot preserves. I add green and red peppers cut in strips and a can of chunk pineapple. Pour over chicken or pork in bake. I serve this over seasoned white rice. Read More

Very moist and mildly sweet chicken. I will make it again. I marinated it over night in the sauce and made extra sauce to pour over the chicken. I used a russian dressing from this site which was excellent. I'd suggest adding garlic and onions. Must try chicken. Read More

I've been making this dish for over 20 years! It's always great although now I make my own catalina-style salad dressing and onion soup mix. 1 cup apricot preserves is about a 10-ounce jar...but if you use 12 ounces that's OK too! Although I prefer to bake this in the oven the crockpot works well especially if you use very lean skinless boneless thighs. Read More

This is a great glaze. I cooked the meat on the grill and I've made it twice. Once with chicken and once with pork. I loved it as a glaze on Pork.My husband is diabetic so I used sugar free apricot jam and it was still great! My 3 year old ate every bit of meat on her plate. Read More
