"Given to me by a friend who loves to experiment with recipes. A little kick of Southwestern cooking. Not too spicy, but can be made so with a little bit more jalapeno or other spices for an extra bit of 'kick.'" — RTKB4

whole chicken, cut into pieces
jalapeno pepper, minced
This recipe is great! I didn't use a whole chicken but chose 4 pieces of skinless, boneless chicken instead. I cooked them in a pan on top of the stove w/a little butter (about 7 minutes). Once one side was done, I flipped the pieces over and added the broth/honey/jalapeno/lime juice sauce and cooked it w/the lid on for for about 6 minutes. It came out so flavorful, so moist and smelled heavenly! Next time I would double the sauce as everyone wanted more to pour over their jasmine rice. Don't be nervous about all the cinnamon- it's fabulous :-)
I have been trying very hard to like this chicken! I l-o-v-e the seasoning just how it is. It is very spicy but the cinnamon cuts it just enough. Delicious. And that is where the recipe stops being amazing. My marinade never thickened at all. I poured it on the chicken anyway and it did not coat the chicken at all. Instead it just did not add any flavor. - So after that fail, I tried the recipe again this time as a fajita. Again, the chicken was great, but it tasted very weird with cheese. - I even tried dipping it in dressing but it just does not taste right. - I like the cinnamon but cannot find anything that fits it!
Good. Skinned chicken, used 1 1/2 tsp Cyan pepper inplace of chili powder (hot) and a whole Jalapeno pepper. Placed in baking dish, cooked in sauce, basting every 5 min.
Excellent. Used extra sauce with water to cook rice and was delicious.
This was awesome, super easy. I was looking for something quick but different then the same old stuff. And decided to try this, my family loved it. They told me I will definately be making this more often.
I would have never guessed that cinammon could be good with chicken but this is fantastic!
Very spicy, very yummy! Husband and I both loved this recipe.
An excellent and unusual blend of flavours.
