Step 1: Marinade ... Add the olive oil, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes and mix well. Rub all over the turkey breast or chicken and place in a large baggie and marinate all day or even over night. For the turkey, I make sure to marinade over night. For the chicken breasts, at least 6-8 hours. This recipe can also be used for smaller cuts of chicken, but only marinate 4-6 hours.
Step 2: Glaze ... Mix the apricot preserves with the chili sauce and lime juice and set to the side.
Step 3: Grill ... These are really best grilled either on a outside grill or indoor grill. Oven baking is not the best option for this recipe. Start grilling skin side down (if using turkey or chicken with skin on) on medium heat so the skin does not burn. Flip the chicken and brush with the glaze. Cook another 5 minutes and flip again and brush with the glaze. Continue cooking and brushing on the glaze until the juices run clear. About 35-40 minutes total cooking time for a turkey breast and 20-30 for large bone in/skin on breasts. Use a thermometer if you are not sure when the turkey or chicken is done - 165 degrees. I normally remove mine just under, and let them rest before serving.
Step 4: Serve ... Slice and serve family style. ENJOY!
