- Ketchup & Vinegar: 3/4 cup ketchup and 1/8 cup white vinegar blend for a tangy touch.
- Flavor Enhancers: 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp chili powder, and a dash of salt to elevate the taste.
Prep and Freezing: A Meal Planner’s Dream
- Create the Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together raspberry jam, ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, and salt until smooth.
- Marinate and Freeze: Place chicken in a ziplock bag or freezer container. Pour the glaze over the chicken, ensuring it’s well coated. Let it marinate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour, turning occasionally. Then, pop it in the freezer for a convenient future meal.
Serving Day: Sizzling and Succulent
- Thaw and Cook: Thaw the chicken in the refrigerator overnight. When you’re ready to cook (you can add fresh herbs before tossing it into the oven if you’d like!), choose your method – barbecue it on the grill for a smoky flavor or bake it in the oven at 350°F for 35-45 minutes. Whichever way you choose, cook until the juices run clear, and the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
- Perfect Pairings: Serve this succulent chicken over a bed of fluffy rice, alongside your favorite veggies or a fresh salad for a complete meal.
