Credit for the original recipe goes to Jorge Navarro, the chef-owner of Café Navarro, a cozy, Caribbean-style spot in Eugene, Oregon. This particular rendition includes my improvisations based on taste and ingredient availability.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken on plate. Season with salt and pepper. Mix marmalade, jam, ginger, garlic and mustard in bowl. Spoon 1/4 cup marmalade mixture over chicken and turn to coat. Chill chicken and remaining marmalade mixture separately overnight.
  2. Preheat broiler. Arrange chicken on broiler pan. Broil until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Cool slightly. Spread remaining marmalade mixture over chicken. Cut chicken crosswise into thin strips.
  3. Whisk oil, reserved liquid from peppers and vinegar in large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add salad greens, pepper strips and chicken; toss to coat. Top salad with onions.

Toni, this is such a wonderful recipe! The Marmalade has such a beautiful flavor of citrus and ginger! I could have drank the dressing.... I let the Chicken marinate for a good 24 hours and I grilled it on the outside grill instead of using the broiler. This is one of my new favorite salad recipes! Thanks toni! *Zaar World Tour 3*

This was a delicious salad. I did add grape tomatoes to it, which complemented the other flavors very well. Next time I'll probably add a bit of sugar to the marmalade mix and maybe use 50/50 orange and apricot.
