Grilled Apricot Chicken Recipe

This traditional Apricot Chicken recipe uses both an apricot marinade and apricot chicken glaze to make the most delicious grilled chicken.

It's juicy, flavorful, and a perfect addition to your summer grilling repertoire.


– Chicken Breasts – Apricot Preserves – Lime Juice – Avocado Oil – Garlic Salt

Lay your chicken breast in a Ziplock bag or between two sheets of parchment paper.


Using a meat tenderizer, rolling pin, or the bottom of a mason jar, give the chicken a few good whacks on the thickest part. Set aside.


In a small bowl, combine the apricot preserves, lime juice, avocado oil, garlic salt, and onion powder. Mix well, then add to a large freezer bag along with the pounded chicken. Let marinade for 2-24 hours.


Spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray before grilling. Using tongs, remove the chicken from the marinade and lay it on the hot grill smooth side down.


Close the lid and let the chicken cook for about 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip over and let cook for an additional 3 minutes.
