Mandarin Orange Habanero Marmalade Chicken

Turn up the heat on this wonderful dish with a tangy Mandarin Orange Habanero Jelly from Texas Peppy Jelly.  Owner, Craig Sharry was the Grand Champion Cook at this years Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.  His wonderful Habanero jellies bring a nice touch of flame to any recipe.  You can find this and other exciting jellies, Rib Candy, etc. at http://www.texaspepperjelly.com/jellyuc.htm Tell Craig, that Lang's mother sent you.

2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
⅓ tsp dry rosemary
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
2 tbsp Mandarin Orange  Habanero Jelly
8 chicken thighs (we use chicken breasts)

Warm the jelly to melt.  Wisk in the other ingredients.  Place the chicken wings in a baking pan.  Pour the marinade over then lightly brush to even out with a silicone brush.  Let sit 30 minutes.  Bake covered at 350ºF until chicken is cooked through about 40 minutes. Remove from oven and serve as desired.
