A sweet glaze makes grilled chicken shine—literally! Be sure to use skinless thighs, which cook faster, or the glaze will burn before the chicken is done. Our Orange Quinoa Salad is the perfect side to pair with this juicy main.

  • Portion size 4 servings
  • Credits : Canadian Living Magazine: August 2014


  • 1/4 cup fig spread (jam)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 13 kg bone-in chicken thighs skin removed (about 8 pieces)


In bowl, whisk together fig spread, vinegar, mustard and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper until smooth. Toss half of the mixture with chicken to coat.

Place chicken on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once and brushing with remaining fig mixture, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, 12 to 15 minutes.
