"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.

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!
