BBQ Chicken Thighs

Well, it is day two of my Marmalade challenge and  what a delicious recipe I have to share with you today!  I was sent some delicious Marmalades to cook with earlier this month from the people at Mackays,  in honor of National Marmalade Week  (February 28th to March 6th) and asked would I like to try to create some new recipes using it.   I have risen to the challenge and this is the second recipe I created using their lovely marmalades.  For this one I used their old fashioned Dundee Marmalade, but I think any flavour would work well.

Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are trimmed and then browned off on all sides in a skillet.   A delicious mixture of BBQ sauce, marmalade and soy sauce is then poured over top and they are simmed in this for about 20 minutes . . .  until they are meltingly tender.


 The temperature is then turned up so that they cook for a further 10 minutes, until the sauce becomes a thick glaze . . .  creating a tender juicy chicken that is really "finger licking" good!

 You could use any cut of chicken for this, but I chose to use chicken thighs because they don't dry out like breasts do . . .  if you do choose to use breasts you won't have to cook it for as long initially, but you may want to remove them from the pan while you turn up the heat to thicken the sauce, adding them back to the pan for the last few minutes to coat them properly.  (I would halve the intitial cook time in the sauce)
The end result is a really tender and delicious chicken with a sauce that is a bit spicy from the BBQ sauce, sweet/bitter from the marmalade and . . . . dare I say it again"   I must  . . .  FINGER LICKING good!

Your family is sure to love this!
