What you'll need

  • 8 chicken legs, skin removed
  • 1/3 cup no sugar added orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup Balsamic vinegar

Makes 8 servings

How to make it

  1. Preheat oven 350° F

  2. Heat sauté pan over medium high heat and add olive oil. Season chicken legs with salt and pepper and brown on each side for 3-5 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.

  3. In the same sauté pan, add balsamic vinegar, orange marmalade, sprigs of rosemary, zest and juice of the orange. Cook for approximately 5 minutes over medium heat to reduce the sauce. Make sure you stir it.

  4. Place chicken back in pan and coat with sauce. If your sauté pan has a heat resistant handle go ahead and put in your preheated 350° oven. If not, place coated chicken on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes. 

  5. Take out of the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
