Chicken with Fig Preserves and Chili Powder Glaze

This is an easy entree.  It cooks quick and couldn't be easier to make.  It has such great flavor, everyone will think you worked REALLY hard to make such a delicious meal.  {Your secret is safe with me.  ; )  }
  • 8 chicken thighs or drumsticks, or a mix
  • 1 t. kosher salt
  • 1 t. Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning
  • ½ C. fig preserves
  • 2 T. chili powder
  • ½ t. Sriracha hot sauce
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place all of the ingredients, except the chicken, into a gallon sized plastic bag and squeeze all of the ingredients together inside of the bag.
  3. Place the chicken in the bag and squeeze the glaze over the chicken.
  4. Line a cookie sheet or baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray, place the chicken on the foil and spoon the excess glaze over the chicken.
  5. Bake the chicken for 30 – 40 minutes. 
Tips and Tricks:
  • The Sriracha is not necessary but I like a little heat.  If you don’t, then don’t add it.
  • You can use any type of preserves for this recipe.  I really like the fig, but I think apricot would be good as well.
