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.

 

Strawberry Jalapeño Glazed Chicken

A “Better for You” Recipe Perfect for Sunday Dinner!

 

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.

Let’s Get Cooking:

 

Ingredients

Chicken, Shallot, Spicy Brown Mustard, White Balsamic Vinegar, Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Jalapeño Fruit Spread, Chives, Olive Oil, and Salt.

How To:

  • Pre-heat oven to 375° F.
  • Clean your chicken and salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a cast iron skillet, drizzle some olive oil. When skillet is hot, add chicken. You want to give the chicken a nice brown on both sides.
  • While the chicken is browning, mince your shallot.
  • Once chicken is browned, place the skillet into the oven to finish cooking.
  • Make sauce while chicken is in the oven.

Making the Sauce:

  • In a small sauce pan, drizzle Olive Oil, and heat pan.
  • Mince shallot, add to pan, and saute until translucent.
  • Add Spicy Brown Mustard.
  • Stir in White Balsamic Vinegar.
  • Blend.
  • Add Strawberry Jalapeño Fruit Spread.
  • Mix well.
  • Bring sauce to a boil, then turn down to lightly simmer for 5-6 minutes, until slightly thickened.
  • Stir in chives, and turn off heat.

 

Your chicken should be finished, check to be sure. Let the chicken rest outside the oven for a few minutes to let juices settle. Plate the chicken, and spoon glaze over the top. Garnish with fresh sliced strawberries and jalapeño, and a couple spears of chive.

Easy right? Wait until you taste this glazed chicken. Your taste buds will thank you! It was a huge hit at our house.

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.

  1. Thanks for reminding me to try this new line of Smucker’s fruit spreads. I love the heat, so bring it on. Your chicken looks absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to try it.

  2. My family would love the Strawberry Jalapeño spread. I bet it’s good on pork too. I’m going to look for it on my next grocery trip. I’ve got some pork loin in the freezer now. Your recipe sounds delicious.

  3. This looks delicious! I like how simple it is to make too. It sounds like it would be sweet and spicy at the same time which is a combination that I love to have together.

  4. Oh, that looks amazing! I will definitely need to look for those fruit spreads-I haven’t seen those yet, but I think I need some of those in my pantry.

  5. I haven’t see the Smuckers Strawberry and Jalapeno yet, but now I have got to look for this. I love pepper jelly but it’s so hard to find – so glad Smuckers is making it now! Your chicken recipe looks delicious. So glad I saw it on the #HomeMattersParty link up.

  6. This looks so yummy. Not sure if my husband would like the sweet mixed with the hot. But I can give it a try. I love hosting #HomeMattersParty with you.

  7. Oh my goodness, that chicken looks so good. I love that the jelly is sweetened with honey! What an awesome idea. I love spicy. My husband does too, but he starts sweating right away. I can just imagine him trying this, I’m sure he’d love it. #HomeMattersParty

    1. The nice thing is that you can adjust the amount of the fruit spread for your desired heat. I like a little spice, but I’m a definite wimp. Give this chicken a try, and let me know what your family thinks. 🙂
