Hot and Sweet Chicken

I found this recipe from the Pioneer Woman Cooks.  We eat a lot of chicken around here and really liked this.  I have tried it with drumsticks before, but used chicken tenderloin this time and liked it a lot more (not a big fan of chicken skin!).  This was so easy and delicious! Definitely a keeper!

Hot and Sweet Chicken

1 cup Apricot Preserves
½ cups Ketchup
¼ cups Soy Sauce
2 teaspoons Minced Garlic
2 teaspoons Hot Pepper Sauce
3 pounds Drumsticks (about 12) or Chicken Tenderloins

Preheat oven to 350F.
In a small saucepan, combine preserves, ketchup, soy sauce, garlic and hot pepper sauce. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until preserves are melted.
Arrange chicken in a single layer on a 13 x 9? baking pan. Pour sauce over drumsticks, turning to coat. Bake, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes or until chicken is done, spooning sauce over drumsticks while baking. Serves 6.
