Apricot-Glazed Chicken Thighs

Cooking Light
"I adapted this recipe from one of my family's favorite holiday appetizers for roasted chicken wings. They loved the glaze, so I tested it with bone-in chicken thighs. Now it's one of my go-to recipes for cookouts all summer long." —Mary Bone, Little Rock, Ark.
