This tangy dish nicely combines sweet and sour flavors. This is a great recipe for the single, busy person: it can even be made in a counter-top oven! I usually serve this with rice, or I pull the meat off the bone and serve it on a salad.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prep a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Season chicken with sage, pepper, and soy sauce. Rub with 1 teaspoon dried thyme.
  3. Place seasoned chicken on baking sheet, place in oven, and begin baking.
  4. In the meantime, heat jelly, vinegar, and the other teaspoon of thyme in a small saucepan until jelly is melted. Remove from heat.
