Sweet orange juice, tangy balsamic vinegar and savory sun-dried tomatoes turn this dish into an explosion of flavor!

Ingredients

1/2
cup orange juice
2
tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3
to 3 pounds cut-up broiler-fryer chicken
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1/3
cup orange marmalade
1
jar (8 ounces) sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained
1
package (6 ounces) dried apricots
3
tablespoons packed brown sugar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F.
  • 2 Mix orange juice and vinegar in ungreased rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches. Arrange chicken pieces, skin sides up, in pan. Spoon orange juice mixture over chicken. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread marmalade over chicken.
  • 3 Bake uncovered 30 minutes. Spoon orange juice mixture over chicken. Sprinkle tomatoes and apricots around chicken; toss with orange juice mixture. Sprinkle brown sugar over tomatoes and apricots.
  • 4 Bake uncovered 35 to 40 minutes, spooning orange juice mixture frequently over chicken, until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut. (Cover pan loosely with aluminum foil when chicken begins to brown.)
Tips  

Dried apricots offer more than just food flavor; they're also great sources of vitamin A, calcium and iron!

To use sun-dried tomatoes that aren't packed in oil, pour enough hot water over the dried tomatoes to cover them. Let them stand 10 to 15 minutes to soften; drain. You'll need 1 1/2 cups of the softened tomatoes for this recipe.
