4 tbsp good marmalade (preferably Seville orange marmalade)

1 tbsp ginger, finely chopped

1 tbsp garlic infused oil

2 tsp Dijon mustard

½ tsp sea salt

freshly ground black pepper

50ml/1¾fl oz orange juice

1 tbsp olive oil

8 chicken pieces, legs or thighs

For the garnish

Flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

salad or mashed potatoes, to serve

Serves - 4


Heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.  In a bowl, combine the marmalade, ginger, garlic infused oil, mustard, salt, pepper, orange juice and olive oil and mix well.

Add the chicken and coat well. Line a baking tin with kitchen foil and tip the chicken and its marinade into the tin.

Cover the top with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the top foil, spoon the marmalade mixture in the bottom of the pan over the chicken and bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is nicely browned (beware of burning).

Season well, to contrast with the sweetness of the orange juice, and serve with salad or mash. Garnish with parsley.
