Spicy Apricot Ginger Chicken

This delicious Spicy Apricot Ginger Chicken recipe is amazingly versatile.  This recipe can either be baked, prepared in your slow cooker or prepared in your instant pot.  

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken legs
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 1 c apricot preserves
  • 2 tsp ginger powder, or 1 tsp grated ginger
  • dash red pepper flakes, add more or less to your preference
  • sprinkle garlic powder, again, more or less to your preference
  • as desired salt and pepper, see note below

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. Season the chicken with the salt, pepper and garlic powder
  3. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet
  4. In a small bowl, combine the apricot preserves, ginger powder, and pepper flakes. Mix well.
  5. Brush on a light layer of the apricot glaze and place chicken in the oven
  6. Roast the chicken for 40 – 50 minutes or until golden
  7. From the 30 minute mark in the roasting time, brush more glaze on the chicken, on both sides. Baste every 10 minutes, getting more liberal with the amount you brush on with each basting time.
  8. If at the end of the cooking time, you’d like more “color” on your chicken, feel free to broil it for 2 – 3 m

Notes

The pepper I used was a tricolor peppercorn pepper, hence some of the red flakes in the peppered chicken process images. Regular pepper works just as fine of course.
