Sticky Apricot Chicken Wings

Prep time
20 min
Cook time
45 min


  • 400 g apricots, halved, stones removed and chopped
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 tbsp salt reduced soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 kg chicken wings
  • 4 apricot halved and stones removed
  • Leafy green salad, to serve


  1. To make the apricot marinade, place apricots into a medium saucepan. Add 2 tablespoons water, cover and bring to the boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until tender. Add barbecue sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic and paprika. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine. Simmer mixture, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes until thick. Set aside to cool. Using a hand-held electric blender, puree mixture until just smooth
  2. Place chicken wings into a large bowl. Pour over apricot marinade and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to marinate (or longer if time permits)
  3. Preheat a well-greased barbecue or char-grill pan (see note) on medium heat. Remove chicken from marinade. Barbecue or char-grill chicken, in batches if necessary and brushing with the marinade occasionally, for 25-30 minutes or until caramelised and cooked through. Barbecue or char-grill apricots cut-side down for 1-2 minutes until lightly charred. Serve chicken with apricots and a leafy green salad


If cooking in a char-grill pan, place a sheet of baking paper onto the base of the pan to avoid the chicken sticking and brush or spray with oil to prevent sticking.
