How To Make It
  • 1

    Preheat oven 350° F

  • 2

    Heat sauté pan over medium high heat and add olive oil. Season chicken legs with salt and pepper and brown on each side for 3-5 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.

  • 3

    In the same sauté pan, add balsamic vinegar, orange marmalade, sprigs of rosemary, zest and juice of the orange. Cook for approximately 5 minutes over medium heat to reduce the sauce. Make sure you stir it.

  • 4

    Place chicken back in pan and coat with sauce. If your sauté pan has a heat resistant handle go ahead and put in your preheated 350° oven. If not, place coated chicken on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes.
