Jalapeno Lime Glazed Chicken is my recipe of the day with  my blogging group Baking Bloggers. We meet up once per  month to post on various food topics  and share a  recipe. We’ll  take a vote and  whatever  one  the group  decides is it.

This month we are discussing  and sharing recipes for using jams and preserves in  baking. I decided to share my recipe for Jalapeno  Lime  Glazed Chicken with you. It is a riff off another recipe  I did years ago at Recipezaar.  That  recipe was more of a quick stir-fry in a skillet.

Jalapeno Lime Glazed Chicken

This one I happened to make using bone-in chicken breasts. The idea is to bread them, brown in a skillet and then finish in the oven. It makes for a nice oven-fried type of chicken.

The sauce is made on the stove top using a jalapeno pepper jelly and a few other ingredients, such as fresh jalapenos. The sauce  is then spooned over the finished chicken. The best part  about that is if you have kids or someone who  doesn’t eat  spicy, you can just leave that part off and still have some tasty chicken.

The  breast I  had were ginormous (I did try for the smallest ones  I could find). You can use other pieces. Just watch the timing on smaller ones as the overall bake time will be less.

You  can serve this with steamed rice, as I have. Or perhaps you  have anther idea for what you’d like with it.

  1. Oven “fried” chicken with jalapeño glaze sounds and looks like something everyone in my family would love, especially since you added extra fresh jalapeños, Sue. Yum!

    • The melted pepper jelly makes a great dip for things like jalapeno poppers (which is here I use pepper jelly most)

  2. I already put pepper jelly on my grocery list, thanks to Wendy, and now I’ve got another recipe I can use it in. I’ve always got jalapeno’s on hand, either fresh or frozen. I wonder how my hot hatch chiles would work in this. hmmmm
