Orange marmalade brings this recipe together for a sweet but tangy flavor.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup orange marmalade
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 (3 pound) chicken, cut into pieces
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat a grill for medium heat.
  2. 2 Combine the marmalade, vinegar, olive oil, and sage in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes until smooth. Stir in the chives, then remove 1/3 of the sauce to serve with the chicken later on.
  3. 3 Season the chicken pieces with garlic salt and pepper. Grill for about 15 minutes on each side, then brush with glaze. Continue cooking until done, 20 to 30 minutes, turning occasionally, and brushing with additional glaze. Serve with reserved marmalade glaze.

  1. Wow - great combination of flavors! I used boneless chicken breasts and opted for white wine vinegar vs. balsamic. Since I didn't have garlic salt on hand I used minced garlic and a little salt. I didn't bother cooking the marinade but rather thew everything into a ziploc bag and let it marinate all day. - Read more ...
  2. I made this for my family(2,8,12 plus husband and I) Everyone really liked it. I made this in the oven as it is winter and didn't want to BBQ. A hint for those who don't know much about Balsamic Vinegar...depending on how old and how long it is aged for will change the flavour of - Read more ...
  3. Perhaps I did something wrong...I followed the recipe. Just the smell of the balsamic mixture was horrible. I thought it'd taste better when done but it didn't. All I tasted was vinegar. No orange flavor what so ever. I even made an orange sauce out of more marmalade fresh oranges and orange juice and soaked - Read more ...
  4. This recipe is awesome. I am only 14 years old and i made this for my family and they LOOVEEDD it. Great recipe. Its good with mashed potatoes on the side:)
  5. This recipe stays in my Recipe Box! This was very good on the first day, my husband said it was even better on the second day. I chose to use boneless chicken breast and pound the breast to about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. It was pouring rain, so I broiled the chicken. Very good. Thanks!

Cooked for 15 minutes on each side at 350F covered, then 20-30 minutes uncovered at 400F so the skin would get nice and crispy. Every time I opened the oven I placed a little more - Read more ...
  7. The flavor is really good however I think the cooking time is way too long. I cut it down almost by half and the breasts were still a bit tough.
  8. How can something so easy taste so great? Thank you kitchenking1 for a new favorite. I substituted 1 tbsp. fresh sage for rubbed and green onion tops for chives because that is what was handy. I salted and peppered the chicken before printing and checking the recipe learning that it called for garlic salt. So - Read more ...
  9. Also works great on the George Foreman grill just leave the lid open to cook with the sauce brushed on and reduce the cooking times.
  10. I found this quite easy to make and it turned out great. If you are cooking for less than 4 though definitely cut back on how much your putting in the sauce.
