  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pour olive oil and butter into a 9x13-inch baking dish. With a spatula, spread oil and butter to cover the bottom of the baking dish.
  2. Place the flour, salt, and chicken pieces into a large resealable plastic bag, and shake to coat lightly. Arrange chicken pieces skin-side down in a single layer in the baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Turn chicken pieces and bake 10 minutes. Brush chicken with 1/2 marmalade, and bake until the chicken is golden brown and fork tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove chicken to a serving platter, and keep warm.
  4. Reserve 2 tablespoons of drippings to a saucepan, and place over medium-high heat. Stir in chicken stock. In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch and lemon juice; stir into stock mixture. Bring to a boil, and cook until sauce thickens, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in remaining marmalade. Stir in grapes, and cook until heated through. Serve sauce over chicken, and garnish with lemon slices and parsley.

This was pretty good, I felt like it was missing something. It needs a slight tangy flavor added to it.

Never thought to thank you for this wonderful recipe . . . I recently changed computers and had it on the old desktop (no printer) and was stressing about finding it again. I hate when people change recipes, but . . . I recently made LEMON marmalade and am going to try it with that. Although, I probably shouldn't tinker with perfection . . . .

I didn't have Marmalade onhand so I used plum sauce instead. I also added mushrooms to the sauce. Served with Asparagus it was fantastic! will definitely be using this one again :)
