    I thought it was good, but it took a lot longer than 20 minutes to cook and my 4 year old didn't eat it.

    Turned out fine. Easy recipe. We live at 6000+ feet altitude, so added 5 minutes to cooking time. Not an amazing recipe.

    Turned out well the barbecue gets a strange texture if you put it on the chicken before you put it in the oven. Next time I’ll put it on a couple minutes before taking it out. Other than that it turned out nicely

    This turned out really yummy!! I doubled the recipe and added more cayenne pepper than directed just to give it a little more heat! It balanced out the sweetness perfectly!

    I swapped the peach jam for the plum jam and it was the most delicious, juiciest chicken ever! I will definitely make this again.

    Made this recipe and then I made a recipe using Plum jam that I made last week. Both recipes came out super good. I plan to use your recipe on Drumsticks next.

    Nobody in my family liked this meal. The flavor was ok, but if you eat a lot of grilled chicken this leaves you disappointed because it doesn’t have that grill flavor which makes the texture of the chicken feel very off. Maybe the type of barbecue sauce I used wasn’t good with this recipe... or maybe it’s my cooking skills. I’m not sure but I definitely won’t be trying this again.

    It was good! On the spicey side. I will leave the cayenne pepper out next time.

    Tried the marinade in a pan instead, and although sceptic, the experimentation of BBQ sauce and peach jam really paid off!

    it was really good I added more peach like everyone else and more cayenne

    the recipe was pretty good. In the future I think the remaining bbq sauce should be saved and once the chicken has baked, add the remaining sauce to the chicken pieces and place in the broiler to get that sticky bbq texture.

    This was very good. Would probably add more peach preserve next time to get more peach flavor. Hubby gave it a 7 which is very good for him. Never heard him rate anything higher than an 8.

    The recipe turned out great! Very nice and sweet but not overly sweet. I really feel like this was super simple and easy to make and didn’t take a lot of prep work or time to cook. This will be a recipe that I go to anytime I want to switch up how I prepare my chicken thighs!

    LOVE IT ! Paired with white rice, added double the amount of peach jam, might add a littleeee bit more of cayenne pepper next time just for a little bit more kick. My partner isn’t a fan of spicy so thought the amount was perfect

    Super hot with the cayenne - would onl6 use half the amount for my taste. Delicious otherwise. I used fresh peaches instead of peach jam and it was very refreshing.

    Tasted great. BBQ sauce with a hint of peach covered on the chicken. It was great.
