This recipe is one of those easy ones with a wonderful taste. My husband asks often for it - And I comply! I serve it over a bed of rice with steamed frozen Mexican Vegetable Mix (broccoli, corn and red pepper). Enjoy!

I used Dijon mustard and a bit more cornstarch, and everyone raved about this chicken! I didn't have orange marmalade, but I found some apricot/pineapple preserves in the fridge and used that. Great recipe, thanks Scandigirl!
