I was really excited about this recipe, but it was pretty bland. I even used extra garlic, fresh herbs (at least double the amount listed), and mixed fresh pineapple in with plain apricot preserves, and I used a full batch of glaze on just three thighs. After cooking, the chicken looked beautiful but only had a slightly sweet flavor. Wouldn't make again. Also, 5 minutes per side is definitely not enough if you're using bone-in thighs.

We really liked this. I marinated it all day so maybe that is why one reviewer said the apricot was undectable. I could not find apricot-pineapple so used apricot preserves. Will definitely make this again.

It was good, but I have to say that the glaze was largely undetectable by the time we were done grilling the chicken. I did it with bone-in thighs and removed the skin myself. The recipe must mean boneless, skinless thighs. With bone-in we needed to add about 5 plus minutes to the cooking time (and we had only 9-10 thighs). I would increase the marinade or reduce the chicken. I also used finely diced leeks instead of onion powder since I hate onion powder (put it in with the garlic).

This is a favorite in our house. It is requested regularly by my kids.
