While trying to come up with ideas on how to use up the apricot preserves I purchased, I stumbled across this recipe on Grilling.com. OMG, can you say yum? I mean, never mind how good the chicken wings actually looked, but the list of ingredients was right up my alley. All the flavors I use and love so often.... just mixed with some apricot preserves. Although, I continued my search for ideas for a little while longer, I knew, without a doubt, this would be the one I would make. And it did not disappoint!!
