I don't cook a lot of meat so I was looking for a simple baked chicken recipe that didn't require a lot of ingredients or technique. This was just what I needed! I made it using only chicken wings (10 total) and basically doubled the ingredients for the sauce - 6 tbsp marmalade 4 tbsp melted butter instead of olive oil (yes tbsp not tsp) 4 tbsp apple cider vinegar about 2 tsp chopped rosemary and I added about a tablespoon of honey. I added the sauce from the start and baked them (skin-side up) for about 40 minutes then turned them over and baked them for another 10 minutes. They turned out perfectly! I'll definitely make this again. Read More

Marmalade sweetness with a subtle hint of rosemary. Yum! The chicken was moist (even with boneless chicken breast) and tender. The marmalade and rosemary worked well together. Made it to recipe except I doubled up on the glaze and was glad I did; it made for a good balance with amount of natural juices from the chicken when finished. Will make again. Pros: Easy Dinner Read More

I follow the recepie except instead of placing the chicken in the oven for 20 min then topping it with the marmalade mixture I thorw the marmalade in the baking dish right away. I think it adds a lot more flavor when it bakes the entire 40 minutes. Either way it is an awesome recepie. Read More
