    Yummy and moist! I used the optional jam (but used grape). I marinated for 8 hours. It wasn't too sweet....just right. Thanx for an easy yummy grilled chicken. I'll make this again.

    This was quite good, but a little on the sweet side for me. Next time I think I would halve the amount of brown sugar. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Very good recipe! I marinated overnight and omitted the olive oil. I was surprised with all the different flavours that the raspberry was the strongest.

    We loved the taste of this chicken but found it a little dry. The marinade had wonderful taste and I will make it again but I think next time I will pound the chicken thinner so it will bbq quicker and possibley be more moist. Thanks for sharing.

    Love having my chicken marinating in the fridge and ready to grill. I agree with MammaChef, this is fabulous! Thank you for an easy to prepare recipe that makes for great grilling.


I am retired and live in Oklahoma. We use to raise scottish terriers, but now just enjoy having of which is a rare wheatland scotty. We have 2 grown daughters and my oldest has my grandson & granddaughter. Katy is almost 13 now, and I love and cherish the time she spends with me. My youngest dd is FINALLY having a baby,,a little girl due on April 1 '05. We are very excited! Hubby and I love taking out our pontoon boat every chance we get...we love to fish, but I'm happy just to be out on the water :) I love all kinds of cookbooks, especially southwest and cooking for two meals. Of course Zaar is the best recipe site on the net! I've started copying zaar recipes for my granddaughter and she says she'll never be able to make them all :) My hobbies include my dogs,,grandkids, painting art hobbies, and most garage sales too!! I really love working outside in my gardens, but health and "old bones" keep me from it more than it used to. My hubby and I love to travel and also fish. I have used this site for awhile now and I'm embarrassed I haven't shared more of mine. Guess I've been busy making yours! When I have a question, the members here are so friendly, helpful and very quick to answer back! Of course, you've figured by now I love to talk!! I have to say my love for cooking comes from my mom. She is one of those cooks that just gets into the kitchen and starts cooking with no recipes and everything she makes is wonderful! She's about the best "all around cook" I know! I'd like to think I "inherited" some of her cooking intuition :) But getting close to 80 (sorry mom, but you sure don't look it) she cooks circles around me!
