Jalapeno Lime Chicken
A delicious taste sensation. Jalapeno Lime Chicken is a super easy and delicious glazed chicken made with a jar of Jalapeno Apple Jelly. You can easily make your own jalapeno apple jelly following this recipe Jalapeno Apple Jelly or you can certainly pick up a jar at your local grocery/specialty store. Stonewall Apple Jalapeno Jelly is fantastic in this recipe. We purchased it at a super nice gift store in Antigo WI called Schroeder’s Gifts
In this recipe you can use either chicken breast or chicken thighs. This recipe works really well with chicken thighs so when they go on sale in your area, pick some up and make this recipe. I prefer to make this recipe with chicken (thighs) that has the skin on but you can remove the skin if your on a diet or for health reasons. Left-overs make great cold chicken sandwiches and you can use the chicken in any recipe that calls for cooked chicken such as chicken salad.
Spicy, yet fruity and Delicious.
