Apricot Glazed Baked Chicken is my recipe of the day. I have put together a simple marinated chicken  leg recipe that is easily baked after  marinating for a few hours.

The glaze is a simple mixture of  apricot jam with some  lemon juice that gets brushed on for a  scrumptious finish.

I served  this on  my Instant Pot Pecan Long Grain and Wild Rice which I recently  posted. Together they make a great pair. Just add a vegetable or tossed salad and you’re all set.

And who doesn’t love another economical chicken  leg recipe to add to  the rotation?  Everyone loves saving money.
