Apple Pepper Chicken

Recipe by Sandy Doenges

I found this recipe in our news paper. It has a savory sauce, not to sweet with a hint of heat. I use Braswell's Red Pepper Jelly, and I find this in the jams and jelly section of my local grocery store. I serve this over Uncle Ben's long grain rice.

My husband bought green pepper jelly instead of mint jelly by mistake (because it was green :)) So, my search was on to find a green pepper jelly recipe. I am so happy I came upon this one. It was delicious! I made a couple of modifications only because I didn't have the ingredients. I used boneless chicken breasts and I substituted the lemon pepper seasoning with Mrs. Dash grilling blends (Chicken), I didn't have any apple juice so used apple sauce and added about a 1/4 cup of water. It had just the right amount of heat. My family rated it a 5!
