Published August 7, 2014 by thepinkgourmet

This is an easy but flavorful chicken recipe!  It only has 4 ingredients as well: Chicken Thighs, Apricot Jam(or preserves), Honey, and Dijon Mustard! This is a recipe you could make once a month and not get tired of!


Apricot-Dijon-Glazed Chicken- Source


  • 8 chicken thighs
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) apricot jam
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard


  1. STEP 1

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Rinse chicken thighs; pat dry, and transfer to a baking dish. Season well with salt and pepper; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Bring jam, honey, and mustard to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until thickened and reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Spoon apricot mixture over chicken thighs, spreading with back of spoon to coat evenly.

  3. STEP 3

    Bake chicken, basting with sauce from bottom of dish every 10 minutes, until juices run clear when chicken is pricked with a fork, about 30 minutes.



After you salt and pepper your chicken thighs it is time to make the glaze.  Put your Apricot Preserves(Jam), Dijon Mustard, and Honey into a medium-sized sauce pan.  I also added a little cayenne pepper and apple cider vinegar.


Bring to a boil over medium heat and then reduce to medium-low and simmer till reduced to about half and thickens. This will take about 15-20 minutes.



Then spread the glaze over the chicken thighs.  Bake in a 425 degree oven for about 30-45 minutes or until done.  I turned mine about halfway through the baking time.  Make sure you also baste the chicken with the sauce during the cooking time.


This is what it looks like when it is done!  Doesn’t it look wonderful!


I served mine with green beans and rice so I could put the sauce over the rice as well as the chicken! I hope you will enjoy this recipe!
