Recipe by Mirj
This is adapted from a recipe I found on the net. I brought it to a friend's house for dinner the other night, having doubled the recipe since there were 6 of us for dinner. It was inhaled! My advice, make more than you think you need! Prep time includes marinading time.

the family really enjoyed this, although it turned out to be no almond lemon chicken. since the chicken eaters are so picky i omitted the almonds. and instead of orange marmalade i used 1 tbsp of lemon curd-- it worked well, and i had happy diners, and an easy dinner- that alone is worth 5 stars in this crazy household thanks mirj
