Jelly-Glazed Grilled Chicken

OK, so this isn't cooking with soda, but we have several FANTASTIC jams and jellies available in the Simpson Spring company store and even more options for locally sourced meats to brush these glazes onto - such as Featherbrook Farm Chicken or Blackbird Farm.

Try this recipe with your favorite jelly or jam -  we suggest Sidehill FarmsBonnie's Jams or Sprig


  • Bone-in Chicken Parts
  • Cooking oil for the grill
  • 2 TBS Olive Oil
  • 8 oz. or so of your favorite jelly or jam


Preheat and clean the grill. Oil the grates.

Mix 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1/2 of your jam together.

Brush the chicken with the remaining olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Place chicken on gas grill over medium heat. Cook covered 8 to 12 minutes or until juice is clear when center of thickest part is cut (180°F), turning once and brushing with jam mixture during last 2 minutes of cooking time. Serve with the remaining jam on the side for extra dipping!
