It’s time for summer confessions, and there are two of them that relate to this recipe. First, one of my favorite summertime treats is fresh strawberries. I have fond memories of picking them right from our backyard when I was a kid. And, second, we absolutely love Mexican food at our house. Although, I have to admit, I usually ask for my jalapeños on the side. I am a wimp when it comes to spicy heat — think of me on the mild to mildly medium side of the heat scale.

 

So, I was excited, albeit a little nervous, when I got the opportunity to try Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Jalapeño Fruit Spread. The NEW Strawberry Jalapeño flavor joins the Strawberry, Triple Berry, and Blueberry Lemon fruit spreads in the Fruit & Honey line. Give them all a try!

 

I was absolutely thrilled to discover that the heat in the fruit spread is not overpowering. It adds a very nice layer of flavor.

 

I had a great time creating new recipes to #SpreadTheHeat with Smucker’s, and know you and your family will love my Strawberry Jalapeño Glazed Chicken. It offers amazing flavors and a hint of heat. Serve up this easy and “better for you” dish for your next Sunday Dinner or any night of the week.

This glazed chicken recipe is delicious, easy, and satisfying. The sauce has only 5 ingredients (not counting olive oil or salt). How great is that? I know I love recipes with just a few ingredients, especially on busy nights. The glaze is fantastic, and the heat is in the mild to medium range.

Rory and I picked up our Smucker’s Fruit Spread at our local Walmart, you can too! Find it on the condiment aisle. We love that this is a “better for you” product that is sweetened naturally with honey. Rory loves the Blueberry Lemon, but now she’s torn with the NEW Strawberry Jalapeño flavor.
