    We have Spring Sweets Week coming up at the end of this month so I really wanted to go savory with this theme.  I found a recipe for a Thai like chicken dish made in the slow cooker at Taste of Home.  When I first told Frank we were having Peanut Butter and Jelly chicken for dinner, he sneered.

    When I plated it he was still sneering.  Luckily only at me in the kitchen as I was serving this up to our friends, John and Kirsten, for dinner.  Once he started eating it, that sneer turned into a smile and he ate a second serving.

    So while this is not the prettiest dish in the world it is one of the most delicious dinners I served last month and I am happy to share it with you today.  

    If you live in a family of Peanut Butter Lovers, do yourself a favor and try this amazingly easy and tasty dish.  I think it will become a regular for you.  I know it is going to be seen on my table again and again.

    • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless, chicken thighs, trimmed

    How to cook Peanut Butter and Jelly Chicken

    1. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper, keeping in mind that the broth, soy sauce and peanut butter will be adding additional salt to the dish.
    2. Place the chicken in the bottom of a slow cooker.  Whisk together the broth, jelly, peanut butter, soy sauce and garlic.  Pour over the chicken.  Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hrs.
    3. Remove chicken from sauce and shred using two forks.  Return to the sauce to rewarm.  When plating, sprinkle with peanuts and  serve with steamed rice.

    1. Oh my goodness! I was dying to see how you made this. I have a lot of jars of pepper jelly from a promotion. Now I have a new delicious sounding recipe!

      1. I think you will be very pleased with the results Karen. So tasty. PS. I used less jelly than called for in the original recipe because Frank is spice sensitive.

    2. I raised an eyebrow when I read the headline, then I saw it was pepper jelly. YUM!!!!!!!!! My kid is a spice-aphobic, so more for mom and dad :)

      1. It was great Audrey and I only used half the jelly called for because my husband, too, is spice sensitive. He loved it.

    3. Peanut butter and pepper jam on graham crackers or toast is great, but I would never have thought of putting it on chicken! Nice idea.

      1. I was very pleased with the results Mae. Thanks for stopping in.

    4. What an interesting use of the jalapeno jelly.

    5. What a create and delicious recipe! I love that you use jalapeno jelly for a little sweet and a little spice!

    6. Wendy is this a group that I can join? You are "in" on so many good events! I need to tagalong! This looks delicious.
