This was definitely not what I expected! So when I got over it (haha) I realized I had a five star dish in front of me. It has a mild flavor, and is reminiscent of a meat dish with a sweet(ish) chutney. I think it would be great with mashed potatoes, and a green veggie with a sprinkling of balsalmic vinegar.

I have an abundance of homemade jalapeno jelly in the pantry & am delighted to discover this delicious recipe! The recipe was easy to prepare and the results company worthy. Made for the Lorac cookathon 2014.

Needed something quick and always looking for that extra gourmet touch and we found it. Had a bag of chicken breast pcs and no jalapeno pepper jelly so used the red pepper jelly we had opened in the fridge. Loved the heat and the sweet!! Wished we had doubled to sauce. Served with brown rice and chickpeas
