Raspberry Balsamic Baked Chicken
- 6-10 chicken thighs
- 1 cup raspberry jam or jelly
- 1 1/2 cups raspberries, fresh
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons oregano, dried
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
Prepare an 11x7 inch pan, or the equivalent, with cooking spray. Make sure the pan holds all of the thighs you want to use and the mixture you are going to pour all over them. Set aside. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Rinse chicken and dry with paper towel. Place chicken, as evenly spaced as possible, in your prepared pan. Set aside.
In a small bowl combine the raspberries with jam or jelly, broth, oregano, vinegar, and garlic. Stir until incorporated.
Pour mixture over top of chicken. Make sure each piece is coated. Adjust chicken pieces if necessary. I just flip each chicken thigh over a few times. As long as at the end the top of the thigh is showing.
Bake for between 45-60 minutes or until the minimum internal temperature reaches 170 degrees. We baste the chicken while baking every 10 to 15 minutes, approximately. Broil chicken pieces for a few minutes, right after basting for the last time, right before you are going to serve it. It caramelizes and sort of hardens the coating to the chicken. My husband would just tell you that broiling makes all of the good stuff stick to the chicken even more! Regardless, you might want to give that a try! Serve and enjoy!
