I brought this to a baby shower last week and it was a BIG hit! Everyone wanted the recipe. I did make a few minor changes however. As another reviewer noted, the sauce was a little thick so I added the juice of the orange I used for the orange rind and it was a bit tart so I added a few teaspons of balsamic vinegar. I used Raspberry Wine Vinegar (Reese's) which I think has more flavor than regular Raspberry Vinegar. Also, I marinated the chicken breasts in a Balsamic Vinaigrette salad dressing (Wishbone, Kraft, etc.) for about an hour and cooked them on the grill. I used a rice that was a combination of wild, red, white and brown (Texmati). It comes in a plastic bottle/jar. It was very nice because it doesn't stick together. The marmalade was the secret ingredient that no one could figure out. Husbands liked it too!

I made this as a side dish for Easter this year and got many compliments, although I thought that the chicken was pretty bland. I cut the chicken into about 1" chunks, which were too big, so I will definitely do the 1/4" strips next time, and maybe pre-season the chicken a little, at least with salt and maybe some garlic or onion powder. I also used regular orange marmalade instead of sugar free (I don't like the flavor of Nutra sweet) and red wine vinager instead of raspberry vinegar and those things worked just fine!

this was interesting--very different. my grocery store was out of sugar-free marmalade, so i just used regular--maybe that's why it seemed too sweet and overpowering for me. i'm not sure if i'll make it again, but it was fun to experiment with. the grapes, nuts, chicken, and rice were a great combo, i just might need to do some tweaking on the dressing.
