Wonderful served over a bed of cilantro lime rice, cilantro lime orzo, or diced to use in tacos.

I love this served over a bed of salsa flavored rice ;-)



Combine the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and garlic salt well in a shallow dish; add the chicken, turn chicken to coat and set aside for about 15 minutes.

Drain and discard marinade and cook the chicken in 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until the juices run clear.

Meanwhile, saute the bell peppers, onion and heaping tablespoon of jalapeno in the remaining oil in another skillet until just tender and set aside.

When chicken is done spoon the vegetable mixture over each chicken thigh, sprinkle with cheese, cover and cook until cheese is melted, about 1 to 2 minutes. Place on plates over a bed of rice, garnish with remaining jalapeno and serve.

Sweet jalapeno chicken blends sweet and spicy flavors. It is delicious on tortillas or served with rice.



Cut chicken breasts across the grain into thin strips (1/4 inch thick). Set aside.

Thinly slice peppers and onions.

In a large skillet, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and peppers, stirring frequently until onions are translucent and soft. Remove and set aside.


Put remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil in pan and add chicken pieces. Cook chicken over medium heat until slightly brown. Salt and pepper to taste.

Add jalapeno pepper jelly to chicken and stir to coat.

Return cooked onions and peppers to the skillet with chicken. Also add the can of tomatoes. Stir to combine.

Cover and simmer over medium-low until hot throughout.

I haven't tried grilling these yet, but my mouth is watering at the thought of marinating skinless thighs for an hour or two in the refrigerator and then grilling.



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Rinse chicken, pat dry, rub with salt and pepper, and place on a baking sheet. Combine jalapeno, cilantro, garlic, honey, olive oil, and lime juice in a blender or food processor; blend until jalapenos are finely chopped and evenly spoon the mixture over the chicken.


Bake uncovered, turning once and basting after turning, for 45 to 60 minutes or until chicken is cooked and juices run clear.

Tastes yummy served on a bed of rice that was drizzled with the remaining basting juice from the baking dish.



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl mix the marmalade, mustard, oil, jalapeños, lime juice and lime zest. Place chicken in an 8x8 inch baking dish.

Baste chicken with half of the mixture and bake for 15 minutes. Turn over chicken and baste with remaining mixture. Continue baking for 15 minutes.
