    breezermom's Note:

    Hot and Spicy, just the way I like it! Plus its on the grill, which is one of my favorite ways to cook. Decrease the amount of jalapeno pepper if you can't handle the heat. You may be able to decrease the amount of red bell pepper depending on the size of your chicken breasts and the size of your bell peppers. Prep and cooking time does not include the 1 hour marinating time.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine the chili powder, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, and 2 tbsp olive oil; stir well. Brush the chili mixture on both sides of the chicken breasts. Place in a shallow dish; cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
    2. 2
      Grill the chicken over hot coals (400 to 500 degrees) for 5-6 minutes on each side or until the chicken is done. Arrange the chicken on a serving platter; set aside, and keep warm.
    3. 3
      Brush the skin of the red bell peppers with 1 tbsp olive oil. Grill the peppers, cut side up, over medium coals (300 to 350 degrees) for 6 to 8 minutes or until charred. Cut the peppers into thin strips; set aside.
    4. 4
      Saute onion, jalapeno pepper, and garlic in the remaining 1 1/2 tsp olive oil in a large skillet until the onion is tender. Add the reserved sweet red pepper strips; stir well. Add the cilantro and the remaining 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar; stir well. Remove from heat. Spoon the pepper mixture over the hot chicken. Enjoy!

      We found the chicken to be very bland but the veggies were delicious. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      What a great and really differant way to fix chicken. The only change I made was to use thighs instead of breast then followed the directions as prints. Loved the combo taste of sweet and spicy and so easy to prepare. Made for C/S America tour of ZWT 2011

      One of my all-time favorite recipes is Chili Chicken which is fried, so I decided to try this one too, since it was grilled. Now I have 2 excellent chili chicken recipes, one good for rainy days, and this one for spring, summer. I can't lose here. The only adjustment I made was cut down the red peppers in half. Very good flavors here, as yes it is Hot and Spicy, just the way it should be. Grilling time was right on the money. Made for your win in Spring 2011 Tic Tac Toe..
