Recipe: Jelly Chicken

by Robin

"Jelly Chicken" is so simple to make and yummy to eat.  I've tweaked the recipe to use less sauce than the original to make it less expensive and more healthful.  This baked chicken recipe has been a favourite around our table since my friend Jane led me to it.  (You can get to know Jane and more of her great ideas about nourishing your body and soul on her blog, Craving Fulfillment.)


  • 1/2 cup grape jelly
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 onion, minced (or 1 Tbsp onion powder, if you, like us have onion-phobic children)
  • 1 Tbsp cider vinegar (or red wine, or white, whatever you've got really)
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 kg (or approx 2 lbs) chicken thighs, skin removed


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In microwave safe measuring cup, measure and stir together the jelly, ketchup, onions, vinegar and spices. 
  3. Microwave on HIGH for 2-3 minutes until mixture boils and jelly is melted.
  4. Arrange chicken thighs in a 13 x 9 baking dish. 
  5. Pour the sauce over chicken.  Turn pieces to coat both sides.
  6. Bake uncovered for 50-55 minutes until chicken is cooked well.
  7. Enjoy!
