  • Place oven rack in bottom third of oven. Preheat oven to 400°F. For glaze, in small saucepan combine spreadable fruit, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and cayenne. Heat over medium-low heat until spreadable fruit is melted. Remove and stir in vinegar; cool.

  • Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with foil. Arrange chicken in single layer. Pour apricot glaze over chicken, turning pieces to coat. Arrange pieces skin sides up. Bake, uncovered, 40 to 45 minutes or until done (175°F in thickest part) and tops are browned, brushing with glaze two times during baking. Skim fat from pan juices; serve juices over chicken.

This dish is both easy to prepare and delicious. I use fresh ginger and lots of cayenne pepper. I also cut up dried apricots. Really a hit
