Sangria Chicken

My life will never be the same.
I recently started following How Sweet It Is. When Jessica posted a Sangria Chicken recipe a few days ago, I commented telling her "I must make this". I wasn't lying. I followed her recipe to a tee, so if you want it, check out her blog. I took a few pictures along the way to document the ingredients. Naturally, the recipe calls for red wine! I purchased an inexpensive bottle of Merlot. This wine is full of vibrant fresh blueberry flavors with hints of plum and blackberry. I couldn't have picked a better wine to get the job done.
Red seedless grapes, halved.
I rarely buy grapes. I forgot how potently sweet and juicy these little guys are.
Lime wedges.
3/4 cup of marmalade.
The red wine and marmalade are reduced to form the Sangria glaze, while the chicken bakes. The halved grapes and lime wedges will serve as garnishes. The chicken and sangria are all prepared. They are just about to go back into the oven for another 10 minutes. 

Grape overload!
I paired the dish with sliced avocado and Near East Garlic and Herb Rice Pilaf. It was a really good dinner. 

What adult beverage can I turn into an entree next?! And by that I mean, who's recipe can I confiscate?


  1. It looks GREAT!!! I am so glad you liked it! Thanks so much, you're the sweetest. :)

  2. That looks amazing as well, I'll have to try it! Especially since I have a jar of orange marmalade just sitting in the fridge with nowhere to go. Ha, my kid's going to start sleeping so well...
