Excited? Stoked? Giddy? Yes. Giddy. That’s the word I am feeling right now. Giddy about these Dr Pepper® Chicken Wings. And giddy with excitement because college football season is FINALLY here. Seriously, I adore football. It drives my family crazy, because I’m fairly vocal about it. (Fairly vocal = borderline obnoxious.)

I love everything about the game of football. The strategy. The pure luck. The wins, the losses, the drama, the tradition. I love the weather of the season, the school colors, the football parties of fall. And the FOOD.

When I first decided to start a blog, I had to pick a topic. You know, the one central theme that my blog would be about. It was a no-brainer for me. I was going to blog about football. Yep: Southern Mom in her 40’s Blogs About Football.

Grilled Apricot Chicken

Perfectly grilled moist chicken is one of my favorite things ever. Especially when basted with a sweet and tangy sauce. There is something about classic smoky flavor and caramelized sauce that hits all of the food high notes for me. This Grilled Apricot Chicken is no exception.

Thick apricot preserves and dried apricots are the sweet base of our tasty sauce. To get the wow factor, we added some spicy and savory flavors. What did we add? Lemon zest, a little bit of soy sauce, and a few other surprises.

Be sure to see how fast we turned our left over basting glaze into a yummy serving sauce.
