  1. Whisk together apricot preserves, sherry, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper until well blended and smooth. Place marinade in gallon-size plastic bag or narrow dish. Add chicken thighs; place in refrigerator for 4-6 hours, turning chicken occasionally to ensure even marinating.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Remove thighs from marinade, and place thighs in a single layer in a lightly oiled baking dish. A little marinade residue can be left on chicken, but discard excess marinade. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until thoroughly done.
  3. During last 15 minutes of roasting time, place 3/4 cup apricot preserves in a small saucepan; heat over low heat, stirring frequently, for about 3 minutes (or until preserves are of a syrup consistency). Add mustard, brown sugar and lemon juice, and let simmer over low heat until glaze thickens just slightly.
  4. Serve glaze over chicken thighs.
