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 Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Cut each Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast (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 (4 tablespoon). Stir in the Spicy Brown Mustard (2 tablespoon), Soy Sauce (2 tablespoon), Lemon (2 teaspoon), Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/2 teaspoon), Salt (1/4 teaspoon), Ground Black Pepper (1/2 teaspoon), and Garlic Powder (1/4 teaspoon). Let this rest at room temperature while the grill is heating.
Step 3
Heat grill to a medium high heat, around 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). To get nice grill marks, place chicken on the grill diagonally at a 45 degree angle. Let it cook for about 5 minutes.
Step 4
Rotate 90 degrees and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Step 5
Flip the chicken and repeat the process on this side.
Step 6
Toward the end of cooking the second side, baste the chicken generously with the prepared apricot sauce. Flip, baste the other side, and cook for a minute or two. Repeat as needed until the chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).
Step 7
Remove chicken from the grill and cover with foil. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
Step 8
In a small sauce pan, heat the remaining apricot sauce with Chicken Broth (2/3 cup). Stir and simmer until thickened.
Step 9
Serve sauce over the grilled chicken. Enjoy!
