Sweet Jalapeno Chicken

"Fast and easy, and delicious, with the flavors of jalapeno jelly, Dijon mustard and honey. Do try to use the RED jalapeno jelly, however; the green-colored one looks much less appetizing (though it still tastes fine)!"

    I did take liberties with this wonderful flavored chicken. Because I am cutting back on EVERYTHING and because I felt I had to forgo the skin (best part of the chicken) I ended up with 2 skinless, boneles breasts. I was worred they would become dry if I just baked them with the sauce so I cut them up to bite size, cut the recipe back to 2 breasts and cut back on the honey. Mixed the Dijon, honey & Jalapeno jelly. Then Wok'd the chicken for about 8 minutes, added the sauce and in 11 minutes the WONDERFUL flavored chicken bites were ready, I mean try this recipe MMMmmmm

    I cut this recipe in half and used regular ol preparred mustard. I used my own homemade Hibanaro/garlic jelly made it very spicey, flavorfull and very good. I will make this again!

    Awesome - we followed the recipe exactly. Was surprised that the jelly didn't add heat but sure was delish. Wish I had made rice so we could have poured the juices over it. Next time!!

    Yummy. I made it just as you posted it. I also thickened the pan juices and served over rice. Thanks for posting.

    Love the glaze that is put onto the chicken. I made this to go along with Recipe #58813. I BBQ'd the chicken breasts and the last few min., put on the glaze. Loved it and will make it many times again. Used Jalapeno garlic jelly that I had made recently. Yum!

    This was delicious! DH and I both really enjoyed the sauce for this chicken! I used chicken wings instead of breasts and this worked very well. I prepared the sauce exactly as directed. Such a simple recipe that results in a ton of flavor! I usually keep chicken tenders in the freezer, so I know I will try it with them also! Thanks EGA!
