What a great fresh chicken recipe! The chicken had a little kick but wasn't too spicy; a nice combination with the veggies. I used fresh corn cut from the cob and left out the onions. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Overall flavors were good, I will make again with adjustments. I added a fresh chopped jalapeno pepper with the onions. I also added chipotle powder to the pepper jelly mixture (made with Hot Pepper Garlic Jelly #95632). Cook times were too long on both the chicken and veggie mixture. I will reduce the veggies down to 10-15 minutes next time. As stated they were mushy. Flavors were even better the next day for lunch.
