Apricot pineapple grilled chicken recipe

This grilled chicken recipe can be used for wings, loins, drumsticks or any other chicken grilling. It’s a great recipe for those that don’t like a heavy smoke or spicy flavor for their chicken. I make this for the kids when I have a BBQ and the BBQ or smoke is too much for them. It’s fast and easy too!

  • 5 lbs chicken wings, drumsticks, tenderloins, whatever.
  • 18 oz apricot & pineapple preserves. You cat use apricot preserves or orange marmalade too. Go nuts.
  • 1.5 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1 heaping tbsp minced garlic.
  • 1.5 cups soy sauce.

Mix all the ingredients minus the chicken in a bowl and set aside 1/2 cup of the marinade to use later.

Use a gallon bag and put all the chicken and the bowl of marinade together and let marinade overnight. I will flip the bag over once or twice to make sure all the chicken gets some.

Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade, wash hands. **DO NOT USE THE BAGGED MARINADE FOR BASTING**

Cook down that 1/2 cup or marinade you set aside until it thickens into a nice glaze.

I like to use one of these types of cast-iron grills for grilling inside. Put it right over two small gas burners and it works great!

Cook the drumsticks for about 25 minutes, turning a couple times. Baste some of that glaze on it near the end and enjoy!
