Grilled Jam Glazed Chicken

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs
6 oz orange jam
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 large onion, chopped
freshly ground black pepper

wood chips for smoking

Place all ingredients in a resealable bag or marinating container. Marinate at least 2 hours. Prep grill. Place the chips in a foil packet (poke holes in it) or in a smoker box. Grill, flipping once, until the chicken is cooked through, about 10-15 minutes.

My thoughts:

I found this nonstick spray for grilling and I love it. It holds up to high/direct heat and while in the past I've oiled the rack, I've had problems with chicken sticking to the grill. The chicken did not stick at all when I used the spray. I'm going to stock up. In the meantime, this is some seriously juicy, tasty chicken.
