This is another lovely recipe from my SIL Trish, thanks Trishy! Sorry it took so l o n g to getting around and making this but better late than never as they say. When I make this again though, I will double the amount of Dijon mustard from one tablespoon to two as I couldn’t quite taste it and think it will enhance the citrus flavours even more.
6 to 8 chicken thighs
½ cup marmalade
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1tbsp olive oil
½ inch piece ginger grated
1 garlic clove crushed
Juice & zest of 1 orange
Salt & black pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
- Place the chicken pieces in a large oven proof dish.
- Combine all the ingredients and pour over the chicken.
- Bake for 45 – 60 minutes, basting every 15 minutes.
- If the sauce is still runny, reduce in a pan and pour over the chicken before serving.
–You had me on marmalade, Mandy 🙂 O, YES!
Looks toooo delish.
How are you? Your furry kids? South Africa? X
All fine thanks Kim – hoping that the cold weather is on its way out. The fur babies as always are perfect and adorable and precious! How are you in Minnesota? xoxo
All is Okay in Minnesota. It will be Autumn soon…
Sending you warm kisses. x
Big hugs back to you. 🙂 xo
It looks yummy…..great pics!
Thanks Sue! Have a great afternoon. 🙂
That’s a great recipe for marinated chicken. I’m always looking for inspiration when it comes to preparing chicken to grill or BBQ. And we’re about to come into BBQ season so your recipe is very timely. Love how it also has a little bit of ginger xx
Can’t believe I didn’t think about bbq’ing these! What a brilliant idea Charlie. Will have to rectify that as soon as possible. have a lovely afternoon. 🙂 xo
I make a similar dish using apricot jam. Must try using marmalade, your dish is so temptingly delicious looking.
Ooh Norma, I will definitely try the apricot jam next with this, thanks for the idea. Have a lovely day. 🙂
I’ve heard of this, and always wanted to try it, so many thanks Mandy !
I would love to hear what you think about it Claire. Have a super day. 🙂
wow This is a must-try!
Thanks Angie, glad you like the idea. Have a lovely day. 🙂
Lovely recipe. Neither my wife or I use marmalade on toast etc… but I bought a jar quite a while ago with a view to using it as you did (although I was thinking something vaguely Asian). It’s about time I actually got around to doing something with it, I guess 🙂
Thanks John. I look forward to you Asian infused recipe. No pressure but you need to get used to your new kitchen so this might be a good time to give it a try. Have a super day. 🙂
This is “spot on” the sort of chicken dish I love. Sticky and sweet but you’ve added the dijon for some added flavor!! I will have to try this one on the fam! xx
The Dijon is a lovely little twist Smidge. Hope you get rave reviews from the family. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
2 posts in one day! YAY!
THis sounds great, Mandy. WIth all of the jam I’ve been making of late, I’ve been wondering about using some as a glaze. If I’m half as successful as your dish, I’ll be very happy. Thanks and have a good week!
To be honest, it was a bit of a blupse to have both posts go off on one day but no matter as it has made you happy. 😀 I look forward to hearing how delicious this is using your homemade jam. 🙂
What a great recipe! I’ve heard of this but I haven’t made it. Definitely on my to make list… which keeps getting longer and longer. 🙂
I also have an ever growing list Karista, well more of a file than a list. Have a super day. 🙂
!!!!!!!!!!!! Speechless. Seriously. LOVE THIS MANDY! Thank you SO much!
Awesome, thanks Sarah. Hope you get to making this soon. Have a beautiful day. 🙂
Hmmm, I may just have to try this one with the ginger preserves I keep on hand and add a bit more citrus to it . . . Sounds spectacular, and I do love orange marmalade too, so then it could just be the right excuse for me to jam-shop. So many choices, so little time! 😉
Ginger preserve, now that sounds fantastic! I would love to hear how you enjoy it and obviously how you amend the recipe too. 🙂 xo
It looks beautiful and tasty…I love this kind of recipes, mix everything together, pour over, put in the oven and eat!!
One question, the flavor of marmalade could be anything?
Definitely my kind of cooking Giovanna, quick and easy and hopefully always with a tasty result. You could most definitely use any marmalade and even a mixture if you like. Have a super day. 🙂
Great supereasy recipe I have to try soonest – love the marmalade idea as that would add a touch of interesting ‘bitterness’ – with my love of depth of flavour, would probably also have a ‘heavy’ spoon with the mustard!
Hi Eha, thanks for stopping by. The mustard must definitely feature more in this lovely recipe. Enjoy! Have a super weekend. 🙂
I have chicken out for tonight! Perfect 🙂
Great! I look forward to hearing how you enjoy it Tandy. Have a super weekend. 🙂
Def going to try this, looks so delicious and sticky. Mands won’t you consider putting a print button on your blog so I can just print out your lovely recipes instead of copying and pasting into a word doc and then printing?
I’m sure you and Terry will enjoy this. There is a print button at the bottom of the post on the left hand side – hope you find it. Have a super weekend. 🙂 xo
Clearly I need new glasses! Ha ha ha
Silly billy xo
The chicken looks super good 🙂 I love that it looks like having a sweet and sticky glaze on top 🙂
Thanks Tes. Have a super weekend. 🙂
O often roast a chicken glazed in marmalade and marmade in gravy is divine but this looks like the best .. I will try it tonight.. As i have already got the chicken out and was not sure what to do with it.. lovely.. c
Awesome – I look forward to hearing how you like it C! Bon Apetit. 🙂 xo
Yum! Did you serve this with rice to soak up all the delicious sauce, Mandy?
Hi Celia, I did serve it with rice and baby peas. Have a lovely weekend Celia. 🙂
i have heard of marmalade chicken but didn’t get a chance to try it myself. if i like marmalade on it its own so much then i am bound to really like this chicken 😉
Thanks for stopping by Cakewhiz. If you enjoy marmalade I would definitely recommend that you try this lovely recipe. have a super day. 🙂
Oh that looks so yummy. A great back to school classic for those weeknight meals.
Chicken is so adaptable to so many different flavours. Hope your back to school week is going well. Have a super weekend Bam. 🙂
I agree with you Mandy about using more Dijon mustard…although you might say I’m obsessed with Dijon.
It is a lovely mustard Karen! Have a super week ahead. 🙂
I love the sweet and savoury combination on this one
Thanks Raymund. The combination of flavours really do work well together. Have a great week ahead. 🙂
Sound like a perfect combination of flavors for chicken Mandy. Delish!
That they are Jed. Chicken is such a versatile protein and works well with most anything you can throw at it. Have an awesome week ahead. 🙂
Really like sweet and sour dishes – this appeals.
Hope you enjoy the combination of lovely flavours here Sally. Have a super week ahead. 🙂
This dish would be a big hit at my place!
This does seem to be quite a popular dish Asmita. Have a super day. 🙂
This is a great recipe to have on hand. One that takes simple ingredients, in one dish and turns out looking so gourmet!!
My favourite meals are the ones that come together in one pan / pot. 🙂
Your amazing chicken recipes are definitely sending me mind in chicken heaven right about now :). I LOVE this recipe too. I made your sticky wings last weekend and LOVED THEM as I knew I would
Hi Kay, I am thrilled that you enjoyed the wings so much, thank you for letting me know. Have a happy week ahead. 🙂 xo
it looks even better than the word marmalade sounds! I love marmalade – especially with shrimp and chicken. You did this good my friend
Pete always jokes and says he knows how to use big words like marmalade instead of jam – always makes me giggle. Glad you like this one Belle. Have a super day. 🙂
Oops I think I drool too much. Seriously!!!! This looks so good. The glaze on the chicken is killing me. Shiny and sticky deliciousness. My gosh… you know how to make us hungry for sure!
What a lovely compliment Nami, Thank You! am sure you would be able to add some lovely flavours to this. have a super day. 🙂
You definitely caught my eye with this one & I was surprised at how easy it looks to make. On my list for sure.
Easy is my mantra Diane and this was an absolute cinch to make. Have a lovely day. 🙂
Just thought I’d get back to you – I didn’t have the chicken thighs so tried it last night with chicken wings & it was great! A little messy w/sticky fingers but who cares about that…
Hi Diane, thanks very much for the lovely feedback. It must have been great getting all sticky eating the wings. Have a lovely day. 🙂
This looks out of this world good Mandy! You are going to make chicken night so exciting around here for a while. 🙂
What a lovely compliment Kristy, thank you. Enjoy! Have a great day. 🙂
Hey Mandy! Hope you are doing great. The chicken sounds fantastic and is so pretty! Great flavor combination.
Hi Tricia, all well thanks, I hope the same with you. This is a definite keeper, hope you get to try it soon. Have a super day. 🙂
This looks really good for my mouth!
yum yum yum…
Hi Nina, welcome and thanks for stopping by. This is very yum,yum,yum. Have a super day. 🙂
Reblogged this on Olivia Schmalz Blog.
Thanks again for the re-blog! Have a super weekend. 🙂
I had a jar of orange marmalade that was kind of purchased by accident and, although I’ve never been a fan of marmalade, I didn’t want to waste it. I went looking for a recipe to use it up and I found yours. I improvised a little, since I was fresh out of ginger and I used Gulden’s in place of Dijon, which I didn’t have on hand. I like allspice, so I added a dash. The sauce required no reducing, as it became a nice thick glaze in the oven (baked in Corning Ware). It was delicious, but I think it would have been a little better with the Dijon.
Hi Brian, I am so pleased you enjoyed the recipe and I often amend recipes for what I have on hand. I love the addition of allspice. Thanks for the feedback. Have a super weekend. 🙂 xo

Did you use skinless, boneless chicken thighs? Or maybe just skinless?!
It looks delicious!!
Hi Barb, I used bone-in and skin on thighs – if you use boneless, you’ll need to adjust your cooking time slightly. This is a winner of a meal and so easy. Thanks for popping by. 🙂 xo
