Jalapeño Dijon Grilled Chicken

Phew so what a busy few weeks it has been and I just want to say sorry for the lack of recipes up here lately. Between work, required classes that require 4-5 hours of homework a night, setting up giveaways to give you all awesome prizes, training, and competing on top of having my identity stolen, it has been HELL to say the least. So THANK YOU ALL so much for participating in my giveaway, we had a huge response and if you all keep participating like that it will be really easy for me to keep giving away some awesome prizes. I am already devising my next one so I will keep you posted :0) Hope you enjoy this amazing chicken recipe.

  1. I finally gave this recipe a try a couple of months ago. Wow! It’s been in the weekly lineup ever since. I hope it never gets old because it’s so amazingly delicious!

  2. So very very delicious and easy!!! Thank you for this awesome recipe :) I have made this twice now. Although I look forward to trying it on the BBQ, I had to bake it. I marinated skinless bone-in thighs overnight, as suggested, and baked it with the bits of garlic, jalapeno and herbs sprinkled over it. My company loved it too!! My new fave!!

  3. Made Thursday in case we ate at home Friday. Well, it’s Monday, (Memorial Day, God Bless their souls) and this chicken was sooooo good. Will make a bigger batch next time! Thanks!

  4. Hi! These sound amazing, but I’m doing the Whole 30. Could you suggest a substitution for the honey, or should I just leave it out? Thanks

  5. I have to say I have made this recipe 20 times, and it just might be my husbands favorite weeknight meal.

    I have BBQ’ed the chicken, roasted it in the oven and even sautéed it, and it always comes out amazing! I have even shredded it and mixed it with scrambled eggs… amazing. try it. You cannot mess this up, and it is stupid delicious.

    We follow you on IG. we are totally your fans. sorry… is that weird?

    Anyway.. thanks for sharing the recipe.

  6. OHHHH EMMM GEEEE!!!! Friggin delicious beyond words!!! Made so much that I’ve been having it different ways for the past 2 days! SOOOOOOOO gooooood! I definitely concur with the comment about the support group. I’m so addicted!

  7. Making this for the third time tonight, it’s so good! The marinade could almost be used as a spicy salad dressing if it was perhaps thinned out a bit more with some olive oil and lemon juice. It’s so delicious I just want to use it on everything! Thanks George, I love your work.

  8. OMG!! The absolute BOMB!! Tried it out with someone doing a high glycemic diet and a teenager….both went back for seconds! It was a precursor for Fourth of July. Huge BBQ with 42 thighs..15 people…all but 6 were GONE!! We got a good char on them on bbq then finished in oven as they tend to flame too much on grill…perfect. Thank you. This is now permanent go to recipe.

  9. Are you freaking kidding me with this recipe?! It. Was. AMAZING! I think I ate three pieces. If it was a person, I would marry it. We used boneless, skinless chicken thighs because I have this whole issue with chicken on the bone, and cut the jalapenos to two because I am a wuss…are you seeing a trend? But seriously, I can’t say that I have ever made chicken this tasty. We are having the leftovers for lunch and my husband has declared you a genius.

  10. Are you serious with this recipe?!?! I just ate like three pieces of chicken. Ridiculously amazing doesn’t do it justice. If it was a person, I’d marry it. Used boneless, skinless thighs and cut jalapeños to two because I’m a wuss. Marinate overnight…chicken heaven!!
