Raspberry vinaigrette and raspberry jam lend a lovely fruit flavor to this moist chicken dish I created. Because the recipe uses thighs and drumsticks, it's also economical. I made it often. -Gloria Warczak Cedarburg, Wisconsin

"This was easy to make and a nice change from regular grilled chicken, but I didn't care for the taste too much. It's not a bad recipe, just not one that I care for. My family liked it a lot though :)"

"Very tasty! Used chicken breasts instead, and substituted tarragon for the rosemary. Nice and juicy, and easy to make."

"This was a nice change of pace from our usual rub for grilled chicken. It had a really nice flavor, and my husband asked that it be placed on a regular rotation of go-to recipes!"
