Jammy Chicken

"I got this from a OAMC website. My family loves it and you can use any kind of jam or preserves. Blackberry, raspberry, peach, basically whatever you like. This works well with the fruit only preserves also. This is good served with noodles or rice to soak up the sauce."

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.


  1. This was a very flavorful, yet easy to prepare dish. I downsized to feed four & used chicken thighs instead of breasts, but otherwise followed the recipe as posted. I liked the subtle spiciness from the chili powder. It was sweet, but not overly so. I served this withMizzNezz's Fried Sweet Potatoes & Country Lady's Pan Roasted Asparagus. Thanks, Jill.
