Grilled Pepper Jelly Chicken

We love spicy food here at the cottage and this recipe is a sweet and spicy combination that is delicious. This chicken sits in a wonderful marinate before cooking that leaves it so tender and when you bite into the chicken it just explodes with flavor. This recipe is best grilled on your outdoor grill but will be just as good grilled indoors or roasted in the oven. I recently made the recipe for a cookout and our guest just loved it, we will sure be making it over and over.

  1. What a fun idea! It has my wheels turning for sure. Pinning and can't wait to try!

  2. I love pepper jelly and grilled chicken but haven't ever put the two together. Thanks for this great idea!
    I thought of you with your love of spicy food when I made a corn salad the other day. It was SO good and SPICY because I put ONLY 2 tablespoons of my peach habanero jam in it. It was too hot for my husband, who loves spicy food and salsa. LOL! I loved it. So I promised him that the next time I won't make it too spicy. I'd love to make your El Rancho Corn Salad. Maybe it will be less spicy. :)

  3. Wow! This sounds like it will be amazing. I love the sweet/spicy flavors on the grill.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

  4. YUM! I love pepper jelly and haven't had it in a long while. I can hardly wait to try your chicken recipe, it sounds divine!
