Here's what I did to make the glaze......

3 Tbls apricot preserves
2 Tbls butter
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Cholula hot sauce - more or less to taste
2 tsp grillin' pepper-spice mix

mix it all together and heat it up.

:blushing: Hanig a food A.D.D attack, hope you don't mind if I share it

What if you added some jalapeno jelly and some thin slice jalapenos to the mix? Would the green thin slices look good on the shiny glazed chicken skin?

:blushing: Sorry, it's really not in my control.:blushing:
