These are so good! I changed the recipe a little using pineapple preserves (could not find apricot preserves) and topped with green onions. Next time I will use it with the correct preserves but these were definitely a hit in our house. Thanks for sharing!

We enjoyed these and loved the apricot element in these. I also decided to use the marinade to have more sauce, therefore cooked it over the stove until it cooked down a bit. Next time, I will marinate a little longer to penetrate more of the flavors throughout. Thanks, Teresa, for sharing!
