Serve with steamed broccoli and roasted potatoes.


  • 4 bone-in chicken breasts (about 2 1/2 pounds), trimmed, skin removed
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves, divided
  • 1/4 cup red currant jelly
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly oil or coat it with nonstick spray.

Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, then rub with 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme. Place bone-side up in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat jelly, vinegar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon thyme over medium-low heat until jelly is melted. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.

Turn chicken meat-side up. Brush liberally with jelly glaze. Continue to roast, brushing twice with remaining glaze, until the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes more. Serve.
