Author's Notes

Due to variances in chicken breast thickness and grill temperatures, we highly recommend using a food thermometer to ensure your chicken is properly cooked.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Cut each Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (6) in half horizontally to create two thinner pieces. Cover and refrigerate until time to cook.
step 2
In a medium bowl, combine the Apricot Preserves (3/4 cup), Dried Apricot (1/2 cup), and Chicken Broth (1/4 cup). Stir in the Spicy Brown Mustard (2 Tbsp), Soy Sauce (2 Tbsp), zest from Lemon (1/4), Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/2 tsp), Salt (1/4 tsp), Ground Black Pepper (1/2 tsp), and Garlic Powder (1/4 tsp). Let this rest at room temperature while the grill is heating.
