Apricot Glazed Chicken

If you are looking for a change from traditional takeout and for something everyone will be raving about, this perfect combination of sweet and tangy; with a hint of spice; will delight all who gather around your table!  Bone-in or boneless; skin on or skinless; white or dark meat, you won't go wrong with any combination; it's all up to your preference.  Our family enjoys this dish with chicken thighs.  We purchase them bone-in; but remove the bone prior to cooking.  It is a must for these to be served with mixed vegetables and rice!
