Love this~ I had to triple the recipe because i had 3x the chicken, but i didn't change any of the proportions. I used chicken thighs, but the sauce became a bit fatty, i guess from the skin. I decided to skim the fat off, before i raised the temp. to 400* so i can get a good glaze on the chicken. I used Sweet Baby Ray's Hot and Spicy Sauce. Just a forewarning, this is an orange flavored recipe. it's not going to mellow out as you cook it. So if you do not like Chicken/fruit combinations, you are going to hate this. I think Pineapple Preserves would be a good substitute to Orange Marmalade.

Giving it 5 stars, we really liked it. I doubled the sauce, used a whole package of thighs and cooked in my crock pot on low for about 5 hours.. Very good.
