On Wednesday, I promised I’d share with you my daughter’s Thursday night pepper jelly delight, so here it is. All I can say is, I sure envy her supper guests this week! This chicken pepper jelly stir-fry is about as individualistic as a meal can get because after she cooked the chicken mixture, each guests got to stir in whatever kind of Texas Pepper Jelly he/she liked best!
2 pounds cut-up chicken
1 tbs. olive oil
1 green pepper, cut into thin strips
2 onions, diced
fresh fruit, various kinds (Sara had raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, orange slices, & apples)
As many jars of Texas Pepper Jelly as you have on hand (Sara had several)
What to do:
Put the chicken in a large frying pan or wok along with a tablespoon of olive oil, and cook until almost done. Add the green pepper and onions, and cook until chicken is completely done.
Each guests then dipped out a share of the chicken mixture, put it on his/her plate, and added fruit and pepper jelly to taste. Some of the guests stirred theirs in a smaller pan; others just mixed it in their plate and took it from there.
At the end of the meal, every single jar – and they had all been unopened – was empty.
Some people used the pepper jelly on their salads, as well. Texas Pepper Jelly makes an awesome salad dressing!
