Ingredients
  • 4 pounds bone-in chicken thighs
  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, about 2 oranges
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chiffonade fresh mint leaves
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chiffonade basil leaves
  • 3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon celery seeds
  • Glaze:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1/2 cup orange marmalade (look for marmalade with small rinds)
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup reserved marinade, strained
Directions

Glaze, recipe follows

Combine all the ingredients in a large resealable plastic bag and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Remove the chicken from the marinade, reserving 1/4 cup for glaze and put the chicken in a 13 by 9-inch pan and bake for 45 minutes. Baste with the glaze, turn the pieces over and bake for an additional 15 to 25 minutes, basting every 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and arrange the chicken on a serving platter.

Glaze:

In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot add the shallots and ginger and saute for 3 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and reduce heat to a low simmer. Cook for 15 minutes. Baste the chicken with the glaze after 45 minutes.
