This was very good; it tasted fresh and summery and the chicken stayed moist. It was a bit too sweet for my taste, and I would probably use sugar-free marmalade, and a bit more seasoning in the future. I served this with a very hearty wild rice (with green onions stirred through)--it was a great contrast to the fruity sauce.
