"Original recipe for these apricot chicken thighs was for the microwave. I've adjusted it for a conventional oven but included directions for the microwave. So easy and tasty, yet low in calories!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Arrange chicken thighs in an 8x12-inch baking dish.
  2. Combine apricot preserves, soy sauce, sherry, garlic, and ginger in a small bowl. Brush mixture over the thighs.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven, basting chicken with the preserve mixture 3 to 4 times, until juices run clear, 30 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thighs should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  4. Sprinkle green onions over thighs.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can substitute peach preserves for the apricot preserves and lemon juice for the sherry if desired.
  • Microwave directions: Cook, covered with waxed paper, on high for 14 to 18 minutes until tender and juices run clear when tested with knife; occasionally brush chicken with remaining preserve mixture and rearrange chicken halfway through cooking.

We liked it and didn't make any changes.

I am on low sodium diet so I substituted 1 teaspoons toasted sesame oil plus one tablespoon balsamic vinegar for the soy sauce. My family, who are nor on restricted salt intake, enjoyed it!

This turned out excellent! Left out the ginger due to personal preference. Made a similar recipe as this on the same night and this one was hands down the better recipe!
