Apricot Glazed Chicken

~3lb chicken legs or thighs
8-10 small apricots (or 5-6 large apricots)
1 tbsp dried basil
2 tbsp Coconut Aminos 
1/4 - 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you like things ;) )
1/4 tsp salt 

1. Pit apricots; puree in food processor:
2. Transfer to a small saucepan, add basil, coconut aminos, cayenne pepper, salt.
3. Simmer over medium heat for ~5 minutes
4. Using a silicone brush, spread some of the mixture over the chicken.
5. Grill chicken for 12-15 minutes on each side on medium heat. Glaze both sides of chicken with sauce. 

Side note: the Coconut Aminos sauce I used (link provided) seems pretty paleo-friendly, and works as a substitute for soy sauce.
