When a friend-of-a-friend started a business selling jams, jellies and salad dressings, I bought some of her Red Pepper jelly (www.sophie-maries.com). I came up with this recipe, loosely based on some I had seen on the internet. It turned out awesome, and so simple, too! Leftovers make delicious chicken salad. I geared this recipe for 3 chicken portions, but it can easily be adjusted up or down; just remember 1 Tbl of each ingredient per chicken breast.
