Grilled Apricot Chipotle Chicken

While experimenting with interesting flavor combinations, we found that apricot and chipotle taste fantastic together. This chicken turns out juicy and dripping with apricot chipotle glaze, giving a sweet, fruity taste with a spicy finish.


  • 8-10 pieces of skin-on chicken
  • ¾ cup apricot jam
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 2 tbsp chipotle powder
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper


  1. Set your grill to 365°F.
  2. Rub pieces of chicken with olive oil, granulated garlic, salt, and pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, combine apricot jam, white wine, and chipotle powder to create the glaze. Set this aside.
  4. Place your chicken on the grill and let it cook for 25 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F.
  5. Use a basting brush to generously add the apricot chipotle glaze to the chicken.
  6. Close the grill and let the chicken cook, turning and brushing with more glaze as necessary for 10-15 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°
