    kittycatmom's Note:

    We really like Apricot Chicken. In the summer I hate to heat up the house. DH made this for a cookout. Absolutely delicious! **There is also a variation in the directions for Asian Glazed Chicken. *PLEASE NOTE!* For easier clean up I would suggest using a grill pan or aluminum to cook the chicken on. Found this recipe in Cooking Light.

      This was very easy to prepare and the chicken comes out nice and moist. I did use boneless chicken breast. The glaze gives the chicken a nice caramelized sweetness. The only thing we didn't enjoy was the grill clean up. I can't wait to try the Asian-glazed version. Thanks for posting. :)

      Awesome chicken! I had peach preserves and 6 chicken breasts in the freezer so I used what I had on hand. Doubled the basting sauce, DH likes to baste when he grills. :) The chicken was very juicy and tender, the sauce was sweet and zingy, and loved the pieces of peach that stayed on the chicken. Cant wait to try this with the apricot preserves! Thank you so much kitty for posting this recipe! Made and reviewed for the Newest Zaar tag game.
