This is something I used to make all the time, and for some reason forgot all about it. Many thanks for reminding me. It is one of the best chicken dishes around. The only change I make is to add a heaping teaspoon of red pepper flakes. The combo of sweet and hot is addictive! I would also suggest that you use a not so sweet marmalade, like the kinds from Europe.
