From Bon Appetit. Dont let all the steps scare you off. I cut this recipe in half very easily. The chipotles give it a nice kick, so you may want to adjust the amount a little to you taste. Very nice recipe.

Yummy recipe! I used peach preserves but doubled it for a more sweeter sauce. I halved the sauce as that was more than enough as well. Thank you for posting! :D

WOW!!!..Wonderful recipe!! Lots of great flavor going on here. What I liked about this recipe was it had complexity of flavor,the sweetness of the marmalade,the smoky/hot undertones of chipotle.. This is a recipe you could serve for a dinner party and everyone would be talking about it all evening!!.Thanks for another great recipe. Candace

Delicious!!!! I used peach preserve instead of orange marmalade, only because I have a lot of peach preserve at home. It took a little longer than 45 minutes to reduce the sauce. The result was fabulous. We all love it, kids and grownups.
