Balsamic Apricot Glazed Chicken Thighs

Balsamic Apricot Glazed Chicken Thighs


  • 6-9 chicken thighs, boneless, skinless
  • ½ cup apricot preserves
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Prepare an 8x8 inch pan, or the equivalent, with cooking spray. Make sure your pan will hold all of your chicken thighs.  Set aside. 
  • Rinse  your chicken and dry with paper towel. Place chicken in your prepared pan. 
  • In a small bowl combine the apricot preserves, vinegar, garlic and salt.  Stir until incorporated.  Pour mixture over top of chicken. Make sure each piece is coated and adjust chicken pieces as necessary.
  • Bake for between 45-60 minutes or until the minimum internal temperature reaches 170 degrees We baste the chicken while baking every 10 to 15 minutes, approximately.  I even just flip the chicken thigh over a few times.  As long as at the end the top of the thigh is showing.
  • Broil chicken pieces for a few minutes, right after basting for the last time, right before you are going to serve it. It caramelizes and sort of hardens the coating to the chicken. My husband would just tell you that broiling makes all of the good stuff stick to the chicken even more! Regardless, you might want to give that a try! Serve and enjoy!
