Jammy Roast Chicken on plateI don't know if other people make chicken like this but I came up with this recipe when I ran out of things to cook with. Smeared with my favorite breakfast jams, I was a bit nervous about how this chicken would come out. Thankfully, it was one of the most delicious sweet and savory roast chickens ever. I hope you try this!
