Orange, Chili and Lime Chicken


For reasons unknown to me, Orange Marmalade reminds me of vacation. It’s like sunshine on toast.  However, I keep it on hand for more than just breakfast. I add water or fruit juice to make a great dipping sauce for shrimp or coconut chicken.  In this recipe, I use it as a base for my sauce.
