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.

Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Kellogg’s. All opinions are mine alone. #ReimagineCereal #CollectiveBias

 

Remember all those mornings when you were a kid and eating cereals for breakfast? It was great sitting down to your favorite bowl, but sometimes you wished the cereal was something a little bit more. Today, we are going to re-imagine cereal with my new recipe for Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes. You are going to love this breakfast dish, and your family will too.

 

Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes

A perfect recipe for an everyday breakfast or special brunch.

 

So, let’s go ahead and add a little crunch to your pancakes with great flavors for a satisfying start to the day. Kellog’s Cracklin’ Oat Bran Cereal is a great add-in for pancakes. The cereal is hearty enough to not get soggy in the pancake batter, and it provides additional fiber, whole grain, and protein. Surprise yourself and your senses.

Pancakes are quick and easy to make, but I have a little secret to make them even tastier. Plus, there is even a fun part to this recipe that your kids will love to help you with.

 

Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes

Here’s What You Need:

Buttermilk Pancake Mix, Egg, Water, Pure Vanilla Extract (my secret ingredient to delicious pancakes), Kellogg’s Cracklin’ Oat Bran Cereal.

NOTE: You can always use your homemade pancake mix / batter.

Optional Items:

Fresh Fruit (Peaches, Raspberries, Strawberries), Vanilla Greek Yogurt, Maple Syrup, Honey, or whatever toppings you like.

 

Let’s Make Pancakes!

We are going to start by getting our fruit prepared for topping the pancakes when they are hot off the griddle. I had fresh peaches, raspberries, and strawberries to work with, yum! There was a buy-one-get-one sale on boxed fruits at Albertsons that I could not resist. I got my fruit washed up, then sliced the strawberries and peaches.

 

I picked up my Cracklin’ Oat Bran at Albertsons too.

 

Then, you need to get your Cracklin’ Oat Bran ready for the pancake batter (this is where the kids come in). Place the cereal in a sandwich sized zippered baggy, fold it over to get the air out, and seal the bag. Then, let your kids gently hammer the cereal with the side of a wooden mallet / tenderizer. You want the cereal to be broken up into smaller pieces, but not pulverized. Set the baggy of crunchy cereal bits aside.

Light the fire under your griddle. You want it to be hot when your batter is ready.

 

Get your buttermilk pancake mix out, and follow the directions to make your batter. Add a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Once batter is mixed, add in about half of your Cracklin’ Oat Bran bits — you want to save some for garnishing your pancakes. Mix until blended.

Check your griddle to see if it is hot enough by spritzing a little water on the hot surface. The water should bubble, spit, and steam.

Scoop your pancake batter onto the griddle and get cookin’.

 

Topping the Pancakes:

I made two different types of toppers for our pancakes. They were both scrumptious and beautiful. Both plates are garnished with the additional Cracklin’ Oat Bran bits.

Peach and Raspberry with Vanilla Greek Yogurt and Honey

 

Strawberries with Maple Syrup

Now, this is an easy breakfast that you would be proud to serve to your family, friends, or even for holiday and special occasion entertaining. The Cracklin’ Oat Bran adds a little cinnamon flavor to the pancake along with the unexpected crunch — a great way to re-imagine cereal.
