My friend Ginger sent me a wonderful chicken recipe. I adapted it a bit and it was so delicious that I'll certainly be making it again soon.
3 1/2 - 4 pound chicken, cut into 8 pieces
freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup rhubarb jam (if you don't have rhubarb jam - I chose it because I canned some last summer - a marmalade would work just as well)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 large cloves minced garlic
Salt and pepper chicken and rub it into skin. Preheat oven to 400*. Mix other ingredients in small bowl and spread sticky jam sauce all over chicken. Place in 9x13 baking dish, leaving space between each piece. Bake for 45-55 minutes, until juices run clear and chicken is golden.
I think this may be my favorite way that I've cooked one of our chickens - and I've cooked a lot of chicken in my time! Do you have a favorite way to cook chicken, readers?
