 Categories: Poultry, 1994 Dccc, Finalist
   Servings: 4
 
      4 lg Legs, chicken, whole
            -- (thigh/drumstick)
            -- skinned, fat trimmed
     1/2 ts Salt
     1/4 ts Pepper
     1/4 c  Butter, melted (opt)
       1 c  Jam, raspberry, red,
            -- seedless
     1/3 c  Vinegar, balsamic
       2 tb Soy sauce
     1/2 ts Pepper, red, flakes, 
            -- crushed
            Parsley
 
        Put the chicken in a large shallow baking pan.  Sprinkle with
   salt and pepper, then drizzle the melted butter over chicken (this
   step is optional if you want to lower the fat content of the meal).
   
        Bake, basting occasionally, in a 375 F oven for about 45 minutes
   or until the chicken is brown.  Drain off the excess fat.
   
        In a small saucepan, mix together the jam, vinegar, soy sauce,
   and red pepper flakes.  Cook stirring over medium heat until smooth.
   
        Spoon the sauce over the chicken, bake, basting, for 5 minutes
   more or until the chicken is glazed and fork tender.
   
        Arrange chicken on a platter.  Garnish with parsley.
   
        * To reduce fat, butter may be omitted.
   
        ** Red wine vinegar may be substituted.
