Sweet chicken marinades or sweet glaze recipes are not new to me. I make honey chicken quite often, I also made these fantastic Bourbon Brown Sugar Chicken Tenders not such a long time ago. That sweetness is undoubtedly right up my alley. That’s why I can’t understand how did I miss such an outstanding dish like this orange marmalade chicken. Well, it’s better late than never, right?

You can even call this recipe quite skinny, so it’s good for my weight loss journey I told you about a few posts ago. It isn’t high on calories. Yes, all the carbs which are sugars hidden in orange marmalade are not so good, but there are few things you can do about it. First, get a low-sugar marmalade. Second, you won’t eat all the orange mixture anyway. It will just soak your chicken with flavor and stay on the bottom of a baking pan. You can either put it on the chicken or not. Your choice!

    I confess I am not a fan of marmalade, which is why most of a jar is sitting, uneaten, in the fridge (why did my husband buy that?!). I so have to try this! I think, with the other flavours…. yea, this would totally work! Thank you for the inspiration!
