Recipe can be cooked on the grill, or in the oven!

Apricot Chicken Legs


  • 6 Whole Chicken Legs (Can substitute w/ 3 Chicken Thighs & 3 Drumsticks)
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable or Olive Oil + 1 tablespoon for cooking
  • 1/4 cup Apricot Preserves, warmed
  • 1/4 cup Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar

How To:

  • Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. 
  • For sauce, in a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.
  • Cooking on the Grill: Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill the chicken covered, over medium heat for about 30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 165°F, turning and basting occasionally with sauce.
  • To bake chicken: Coat a foil lined baking sheet with cooking spray. Arrange chicken in a single layer. Baste with sauce. Bake at 400° F for 30-40 minutes, or until a meat thermometer reads 165° F.
