This is a makeover of grandma2929's Recipe #118627 into a lighter healthier and lower sodium version. I don't think flavor was compromised on here.

  • Prepare creamy jalapeno sauce by combining all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and chill so that flavors develop. Stir occasionally.
  • Preheat your barbecue grill to medium heat Spray grill with low cal cooking spray.
  • Salt and pepper each side of each chicken breast and the vegetables.
  • Grill for 3-5 minutes per side.Lightly grill the vegetables until done. Cut zucchini in smaller slices. When chicken is done, slice it very thin.

    Very tasty! Due to others' reviews, I did not add any sweetener to the jalapeno sauce and it turned out delicious. I used the recipe for Grilled Mexican Lime Chicken #155699, which made it even tastier.

    I wasn't able to follow the recipe exactly, I don't keep sugar in my house so I used a little bit of honey instead(the good kind) and didn't have paprika or cumin either, but everything else was exact and OMG they were so delicious! I want to say it tastes better than Taco Bell's but they were better! Like a 5 star classy Taco Bell!!! My husband and kids have been asking me to make them all week, every night! They're like "Mommy can we have the Mexican grilled cheese again?!" (that's what they call them) lol 5 STARS!!
