Honey-Glazed Chicken With Apples

© "So Easy, So Delicious"
1 chicken, quartered
Salt and pepper, to taste
Garlic powder, to taste
4 apples, cored, peeled and sliced
1/4 C apple juice or cider
1/4 C honey
1 T brown sugar
Rind of 1 lemon, grated
Rind of 1 orange, grated
1/4 C orange marmalade

Place the chicken in a roasting pan. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place the apples around the edges of the pan. Roast at 350° for 40 minutes. Drain the accumulated liquid and discard. In a small pot, combine the apple juice or cider, honey, brown sugar, lemon and orange rind and heat until the honey is dissolved. Baste the chicken and apples with this mixture. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes longer, basting every 5 minutes, until the chicken is golden. Brush orange marmalade over the chicken and apples and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. If not as brown as you would like, put chicken under the broiler for a few minutes.

Hint: This recipe is perfect in the fall and winter when apples and cider are plentiful. It is even more delicious if you make it a day in advance and reheat it.
