Quick and delicious grilled chicken thighs that are glazed with a sweet peach jam. There's a little heat and a little sweet, perfect for a summer barbecue!
  • 2½ pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3-4 sprigs of fresh thyme, chopped leaves only
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ tsp chili flakes
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 350 ml peach jam or preserves
  • 10-12 skewers
  1. Submerge the skewers in a large dish of cold water while you prep the chicken.
  2. Heat the grill on high.
  3. Trim any fat off the chicken thighs and cut them in half if fairly large.
  4. Place the chicken in a large bowl and rub with the chopped thyme, chili flakes, salt, pepper and olive oil; set aside.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the peach jam on low until it becomes a warm smooth, runny glaze. Be sure to stir often so it doesn't stick or burn.
  6. Thread the chicken on to the skewers, accordion style, aiming to get 2 halves of thigh on each skewer.
  7. Turn the grill down to medium heat and add the skewers. Cook, turning every 3-4 minutes, for 10 minutes.
  8. Using a brush, glaze each skewer with the warm jam. Cook for a few minutes. Continue to turn and glaze each skewer until the chicken is fully cooked, about 10 more minutes (the chicken will have been glazed 2 or 3 times on each side). Most of the jam will be gone.
  9. Serve immediately.
