Posted by Forrest Musselman on


  • 4 chicken thighs (deboned)
  • ½ c apricot preserves

  1. In a bowl, add chicken thighs as well as all ingredients to marinate for 1 hour or more. The longer you marinate the more rich the flavor. Do not marinate for more than 8 hours though.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. In a cast iron pan, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil (separate from recipe) and add chicken thighs once heated.
  4. Sear on both sides for 6 minutes each side.
  5. Once seared and given a golden brown color, transfer to oven to bake for 20 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees.
  6. Pull out of oven and transfer to plate with rice and green beans.
  7. Add a topping of Sprinkling of Salt crushed cashews and bon appetit.
