Grilled Raspberry Chicken

Raspberry vinaigrette and raspberry jam lend a lovely fruit flavor to this moist chicken dish I created. Because the recipe uses thighs and drumsticks, it's also economical. I make it often.

  • 1 cup raspberry vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary, divided

  • 6 skin-on chicken thighs

  • 6 chicken drumsticks

  • ½ cup seedless raspberry jam

  • 4 ½ teaspoons raspberry vinaigrette

  • 1 ½ teaspoons lime juice

  • ½ teaspoon soy sauce

  • teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Combine 1 cup vinaigrette and 1 tablespoon rosemary in a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken thighs and drumsticks. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

  2. Combine remaining rosemary, raspberry jam, 4 1/2 teaspoons vinaigrette, lime juice, soy sauce, and garlic powder in a small bowl.

  3. Prepare an outdoor grill for indirect medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  4. Drain and discard the marinade. Place chicken pieces skin-side down on the grill rack. Grill, covered, over indirect heat for 20 minutes. Flip. Grill, basting occasionally with raspberry jam mixture, until a meat thermometer inserted into the center reads 180 degrees F (80 degrees C), 10 to 20 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Substitute 2 teaspoons crushed dried rosemary for the fresh, if desired.
