Super Easy, Family Pleasing Chicken

Do you ever have one of those moments where you are contemplating what you’re making for dinner at like 2 o’clock in the afternoon, then you remember seeing something in your inbox a couple of days before that you’re pretty sure you have all of the ingredients for?

You find it, it looks okay & you realize that with a few modifications you’re pretty sure everyone would like it.

If you’re lucky you’re right. If you were me this last week, you were amazed because they LOVED it so much I just made it again tonight. This time I took pictures for you all!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

A generous dusting of granulated garlic & a pinch or 2 of cayenne (more if your family likes things hot).

8 oz of apricot preserves
(You could sub orange marmalade if you want it a little less sweet, but it’s not crazy sweet anyway…)

Mix it up well & set aside.

Fill a glass baking dish with chicken thighs & season liberally with salt & pepper. (I used about 10-11 boneless skinless chicken thighs). Then pour on the sauce & spread to cover the thighs evenly. Place into a preheated oven & cook for 60 min.

When the timer goes off turn on the broiler to low for 8-10 min. This caramelizes the top just enough to make it awesome.

And here we are! I served it with rice & salad the 1st night, peas the 2nd.
Leftovers heated up well too…this one was awesome!

Teens, the toddler, the hubby, & I all loved it & that is a rare occurrence!

Go love someone!
