Chicken with Raspberries

Chicken Wings Smothered in Raspberry Marinade

Succulent and tasty Chicken with Raspberries.  It takes only a few minutes to make the marinade, yet it tastes and looks as if you spent hours slaving over the stove.

This dish is perfect for feeding a crowd: it can be prepared in advance and you can cook several baking sheets at the same time.

Granted this dish is not light on the sugar – because of the amount of jam this recipe asks for I would suggest using a good jam with no extra added sugar.

 

Ingredients
(from the blog “the Greedy Gourmet”)
Serves 4-6 as a main meal

375ml (1½ cups) seedless (no sugar added) raspberry jam (didn’t find any; so I passed regular jam through a sieve)
80ml (1/3 cup) balsamic vinegar
45ml (3 tbsp) soy sauce
a generous amount of chili flakes
1 – 1,5 kg chicken knuckles (NL: kluiven) or drumsticks (about 8-10)
fresh raspberries
(optional fresh mint for decoration)

 

Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 140C/285F.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the jam, vinegar, soy sauce and pepper over medium heat. Stir until smooth. (Optional: marinate the chicken over night.)
  3. Cover a large baking dish with greaseproof paper.
  4. Place chicken and marinade in oven dish.
  5. Bake for 20 (knuckles) – 30 (drumsticks) minutes.
  6. Turn the chicken pieces. Increase the temperature to 180C/350F.
  7. Bake for an additional 20 minutes. Check the chicken regularly and turn if it dries too much.
  8. Let the chicken rest before serving.
  9. Decorate with raspberries and mint.
