I just love this tasty colourful recipe - perfect for Seder night. Family friendly, quick to make and you can prepare in advance and easy to serve. You can use chicken breast if you prefer and make double to accommodate extra guests. Preparation Time: 15 minutes Cooking Time: 50 minutes Serves: 6- 8 people


4 tablespoons NO peel Tiptree orange jam 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed 1 level tablespoon freshly grated ginger ~ Salt and freshly ground black pepper 8-12 large chicken thighs and/or drumsticks/ skinless and boneless chicken breasts 6 clementines, or tangerines ( keep skin on) 1-2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6. 2. In a large bowl, mix together the no peel orange jam, olive oil, garlic, ginger and seasoning or combine in the food processor. 3.
