Apricot Jalapeno Glazed Chicken Thighs

A little sweet, a little heat, and perfect for weeknight dinner

This is a perfect recipe for an easy weeknight meal. I chose to oven roast my chicken thighs but this could easily be adapted for the grill.

When preparing your chicken thighs for the oven, be sure to pat the skin dry before seasoning, to ensure it crisps. I allow the chicken to cook for about 20 minutes before I start adding the glaze. Don’t glaze the chicken from the start because the sugar in the glaze will burn easily.

I paired the chicken with a Strawberry Avocado Pasta salad. Get the link to that recipe below.
