One day last week I had taken chicken thighs out for dinner and wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to make with them. As the day progressed, I realized I didn’t have much time to fuss for dinner as our dog had just had surgery and really just needed some cuddle time.

I had some apricot preserves in the pantry for some baking I thought I’d get to over the holidays (and didn’t), so I came up with this quick and easy recipe for Balsamic Apricot Glazed Chicken Thighs.

I combined the apricot preserves with balsamic vinegar, fresh rosemary (because I had a little bit of that too and wanted some fresh herbs in there) and a little salt, basted it on the chicken; then baked them for about 50 minutes. The entire process took only 5 minutes to prepare.

I guess I could have taken the skin off the thighs first and you’re welcome to do so, but I chose to leave it on. These Balsamic Apricot Glazed Chicken Thighs were delicious and the combination of “sweet” from the preserves and “tangy” from the vinegar was a perfect match. I’ll definitely be making these again when the warmer weather hits as these would be perfect on the grill. ~Enjoy!
