Five Fruit Marmalade Jerk Split Chicken Breasts

May 26, 2011

I recently bought some wonderful marmalades from Renee of with the intent of adding them to some great pork and chicken recipes.  This was the first one I tried and the addition of the “Five Fruit Marmalade” was wonderful.  The fruits in the marmalade are Florida oranges, tangerines, limes, key limes and lemons.  I have made this before with orange marmalade but the added flavors in this one brings the subtle citrus taste in each bite to a new level.  Thanks Renee.

    Those look gorgeous. I love the idea of a five-fruit marmalade. I have a batch I have to use up first and it’s perfect for cooking. I love the cinnamon rice idea too. And the whole things just so colorful.
