We had these for dinner tonight. I made the full amount of marinade, then kept some out to use for basting, and we used 2 chicken breasts. This was DELICIOUS. I used the orange marmalade and fresh rosemary from the garden. We really loved this recipe. The marinade gets nice and crispy on the outside of the chicken because of the sugar. We enjoyed it so much and will definitely make it again. thank you for posting it.

We liked this chicken very much! I used bone in thighs and gave the sauce a nice shot of Sriracha. I baked the chicken due to weather issues and then put it under the broiler for a few minutes at the end and it was very very good. I served the chicken with sticky rice and steamed broccoli drizzled with sesame oil and seeds.
