      A great way to use up jalapeno jelly. I am not sure why but I didn't taste the basil very much. This was especially good when hot. The next day the spiciness seemed to be muted (good for my daughter, who doesn't like spicy!). A versatile chicken dish! Thanks for posting, Mariposa. Roxygirl

      Simple and very yummy! Used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and homemade jalapeno jelly. Leftovers were wonderful in pasta salad. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
