Need a new recipe for chicken? Check out this delicious Orange Marmalade BBQ Chicken that combines a sweet and savory sauce on top perfect grilled chicken breasts.

I love when I can find an easy recipe that takes almost NO prep time and cooks up equally as fast.

Even though I love cooking and baking, there are times that even I want to take the easy route.  This recipe uses chicken and 3 other ingredients and that is it. 

Y'all — even I need a day of rest sometimes!

How to Make Orange Marmalade BBQ Chicken

Orange Marmalade Barbeque Chicken is the perfect main dinner recipe for a busy weeknight meal. 

Seriously, the only thing you need to do is combine the ingredients and spoon the mixture over your chicken as you are grilling it.  It really could not get any easier than that!

I love the combination of the smokiness of the barbeque sauce and then paired with the citrus flavor and sweetness of the orange marmalade. 

Brand preference is not a big deal so you can use whichever you like. Homemade is always a good choice, but store bought also works in this case.

The beauty of this is that based on which barbecue sauce you choose will determine the true flavor of your chicken.

It's the small jar at the store. I think it's like a 14 ounce size jar.

Hi Iris,

Yes -- you can totally make this in the oven. You can also grill it and just slather the sauce on as you would BBQ sauce while you are cooking your chicken! Hope you enjoy!
