I also used orange marmalade on the hens and served with the Apricot Rice Stuffing at Easter dinner. Well received!

I didn't have any apricot spreadable jam so I used orange marmalade. It was really good and so easy to fix. My husband enjoyed it. Served it with mac and cheese, mixed vegetables, dressing and Hawaiian rolls.
