Ww Grilled Jalapeno Chicken

"This is another great Jalapeno Chicken recipe by Weight Watchers. It's out of the 2000 "Day by Day" cookbook. It has 3 points per serving. I have done both blender and fine chopping and they are both great. I find the extra bits and pieces by chopping instead of blending adds a great crunch to the dish and makes it look outstanding. Hope you enjoy and happy eating!"

Ready In:




  • Place first 8 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth (or chopped them fine).
  • Combine lime juice mixture and chicken in a large, heavy-duty zip-lock plastic bag.
  • Seal bag, and marinate chicken in refrigerator 1 to 8 hours. (I have done over night).

    Too cold to start the grill outside so I did the George Foreman, we also used boneless skinless breasts. I think I could eat this every day - well that is if you didn't have hundreds of other great recipes on this site.

    These are amazing. We brought it to a byom bbq and everyone was really jealous. I will definitely make this again!

    Made for Potluck Tag. We really enjoyed this, but then again, we like just about anything with lime, cilantro & jalapenos. The only thing that I did different was to use boneless skinless chicken thighs, but that is what I usually have on hand. Will be making this often during the summer. Thanks for posting this Teresa!

    Yum! I used a chicken quarter (long story otherwise, lol) and it worked really well. This was simple to make and very flavorful. Thanks for yet another keeper, Teresa. Made for FYC tag.

    Loved it! Used 1 large jalapeño but will use the recommended amount next time. It was not spicy, made it mild for kids. Thanks will make again!

    Very good. Made as posted except I used jarred jalapeno instead of fresh so I omitted the salt. I marinated for about 4 hours and heat came through fine. Thank you TeresaS for sharing.

    I was looking for uses for my homegrown jalapenos and this fit the bill. Pretty tasty grilled chicken, but next time I might skip the honey, as I'm not sure what it added to the flavor. Served with grilled potatoes and zucchini. I also subbed parsley for the cilantro as a personal preference.


<p>? Hi! My name is Teresa.? My husband and I like to take RV trips but it seems lately we just us it for vintage motorcross races. I enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, have done some rock climbing but age is creeping up on my poor old bones. Anything to do with the outdoors I enjoy, so why do I live in rainy Washington state? We have 2 wonderful children, both grown. My son lives in LA and my daughter and her husband recently moved back in the area with their little boy...our grandson... who just turned?5 years old. We have a granddaughter who lives close by...she just turned 23 this year. She's a sweetheart.?
