The chicken is nice and tender; however, I think I would prefer orange marmalade over black berry preserves and skip the ketchup. Great recipe with lots of room for variations. Thank you for sharing this.
Tasty recipe for homemade bbq sauce! Based on the reviews, I reduced the blackberry preserves to approx. 1/3 cup or so. I also added about 1 tsp onion powder to help balance out the sweetness. It was a big hit at our house. This recipe is a keeper!
Sorry, but I am going to be "odd man" out! This marinade did nothing for me....I found it way to sweet for my liking! I will pass on this one!
Very good...definitely would be good for a dump recipe - will be trying it that way next time. We used apricot jam and it gave it a nice sweet taste with a kick.
Really, really, really good. We baked ours in the oven although I think the next time we grill out I will prepare some as well. It was so yummy we were almost fighting to lick the baking sheet, j/k but really we were.
We had this quite awhile ago and I forgot to review it. It was very good, and I will be experimenting with different jams and preserves. Thank you for sharing!
This was good, but I could have cut back a little on the chili powder, I thought it was a bit overpowering in this dish. I used raspberry preserves.
I make a similar recipe that the family loves (Apricot Barbecued Chicken) but I saw this in a chef's Fav. of 2008 cookbook, so I wanted to try it. Very easy to prepare. I used about 2 1/2 lbs s/b breasts and saved some of the sauce for dipping. Also used bbq/ketchup mix and Fruits of the Forest spread. Doesn't need the salt and isn't spicy at all. It came out juice, but I browned it first and then cooked for about 35-40 minutes. Served with rice. I prefer the other recipe, but the rest really liked this. So we'll be making both regularly. Easy recipe when you don't want to cook.
This was a really good OMAC recipe for chicken. I used blackberry preserves and b/s chicken breasts and that turned the outside of the chicken purple. I didn't brown the chicken first but fixed it as a dump recipe and that may have been part of the issue with the purple chicken. I will update this review the next time I make it. As you can see from the fact that I plan to make it again, the purple chicken didn't bother us that much! The chicken was very tasty and tender.
I used my homemade blackberry jam and wow! What flavor! I, like Pamela, used it for a dump chicken so I didn't get to taste the finished product but after tasting the base I know it will be delicious... Kinda like a hearty and sweet barbeque sauce.
