  • Place the flour, salt, and chicken pieces into a large resealable plastic bag, and shake to coat lightly. Arrange chicken pieces skin-side down in a single layer in the baking dish.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Turn chicken pieces and bake 10 minutes. Brush chicken with 1/2 marmalade, and bake until the chicken is golden brown and fork tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove chicken to a serving platter, and keep warm.

  • Reserve 2 tablespoons of drippings to a saucepan, and place over medium-high heat. Stir in chicken stock. In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch and lemon juice; stir into stock mixture. Bring to a boil, and cook until sauce thickens, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in remaining marmalade. Stir in grapes, and cook until heated through. Serve sauce over chicken, and garnish with lemon slices and parsley.

This was pretty good I felt like it was missing something. It needs a slight tangy flavor added to it. Read More

Never thought to thank you for this wonderful recipe... I recently changed computers and had it on the old desktop (no printer) and was stressing about finding it again. I hate when people change recipes but... I recently made LEMON marmalade and am going to try it with that. Although I probably shouldn't tinker with perfection.... Read More

This was one of the better chicken recipes that I have made in a long time! It does take a while to make but I think the time is so worth it in the end. The chicken was done perfectly and was so tender and moist that we only needed a fork to cut it. The tangy flavor of the marmalade and lemon juice was perfect. This is one that I will definitely make again soon. Thank you for the recipe MAGGIEMAEWEST! Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe it was easy and it's something different to do with your chicken. I omitted the orange marmalade because I had none and no substitute but I don't think it made a difference. The taste was very good and my family gave it thumbs up! Read More
