SPICED HOLIDAY CHICKEN


Chicken Dinner Picture

The orange marmalade and ginger form a golden glaze over the chicken while the apricots and figs impart their fruity flavors to the juices and look wonderful sprinkled among the chicken pieces. The brown sugar in this recipe symbolizes the hoped - for sweetness as the New Year begins with this festive dish as its focal point. It is easy to prepare and can be assembled ahead of time.

directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Rinse chicken and discard any excess fat. Pat dry with paper towels. Place skin side up, in a shallow roasting pan. Spread marmalade over the chicken and sprinkle with salt, pepper garlic, thyme, cumin and ginger. Pour the orange juice and vinegar into the pan. Bake 20 minutes uncovered.
