Chicken thighs are cheap. Here’s tonight’s recipe using them.
1 10 oz jar of Apricot Jam ( you can use preserves, but jam is less chunky.)
2 tbs soy sauce
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup of OJ or bourbon. Tonight we are <gasp> out of bourbon.
Mix all that together and pour over the chicken thighs. We use this for pork loin too. It’s too strong for the delicacy of chicken breasts.
I pour this over the meat. If I have time it’s a marinade. If not, it’s a glaze. Cook the chicken thighs at cook at 350 or so until done. If you are using it for a whole pork loin, cover the loin for the first half hour while you are roasting it. If you don’t the glaze will be burnt to a crisp by the time the loing is cooked. With either dish, make sure you let it rest for 5- 10 minutes before digging in.
