Yooper, I kind of turned this into "citrus chicken" because the only kind of marmalade I could find was orange. Happy to say, it was completely delicious! The sauce is sweet but still so savory and rich with the onions, chives and broth. Thanks so much for posting this easy and scrumptious recipe.

I too used orange as I could not find any lemon marmalade - I used "No sugar added" marmalade so it wasn't too sweet. I also added 2 tbsp of Grande Marnier for an extra flavor boost - Will definaitely make the again - Thanks yooper for posting it. Meanwhile I will keep looking for lemon marmalade as I am sure it will be delicious

Couldn't find any lemon marmalade, so I used the orange kind. Also, the price of the dried lemon peel turned me off, so I used the zest of the orange to add some flavor. I totally skipped the chives, as I'm not a big chive fan. It was delicious and went well with the Asparagus Risotto I made as a side dish.
