TO MAKE THE MARINADE


Step 1

In a bowl stir together orange juice, yogurt, garlic, cayenne, and salt and pepper to taste and whisk in oil.

Step 2

In a large shallow dish arrange chicken, pricked in several places with a fork, in one layer and pour marinade over it. Marinate chicken, covered and chilled, turning once, at least 1 hour and up to 3 hours.

TO MAKE ORANGE GLAZE


Step 3

In a small saucepan stir together glaze ingredients and a pinch of salt and heat over moderately low heat, stirring, until marmalade is melted. Keep glaze warm, covered.

Step 4

Prepare grill or heat an oiled ridged grill pan over moderately high heat.

Step 5

Transfer chicken with tongs to an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals or to grill pan and grill it, basting with marinade 20 minutes (discard any remaining marinade). Turn chicken over and grill 10 minutes more, or until just cooked through. Brush chicken with orange glaze and grill 3 minutes more, turning it.

I had every intention of grilling these but it was pouring rain so I placed the drumsticks on a parchment paper lined rimmed baking sheet and baked them in the oven at 425 degrees for 40 minutes and they turned out perfectly delicious!!!

I loved the marinade and the glaze. I was happy to see that the marinade was thicker so that it kind of coated the chicken. Only downside was I had flare ups on the grill. But the taste was great! Thanks for sharing.

Great tasting marinade and basting sauce! I especially loved the fresh rosemary addition to the orange marmalade. Perfect for the grill and for my tummy! Thank you!
