      This is an easy, flavorful dish. My family loved it. Instead of serving the sauce over the chicken, I cooked the chicken until almost done, then cut it into cubes and finished it off in the sauce.

      Hadn't found a keeper in a while, this is definately one. It was delicious. I did tweak the heat, and I'm glad I did, only 1/2 tsp of cayenne (which will be dropped to 1/4 tsp next time) and only put one jalapeno, for my own taste, it was quite spicy, but oh so good. And I went with what was in the freezer, so I did half chicken breast, half thighs, cut in pieces, and as someone suggested, heated it all up in the sauce. YUMMM!!!
