""This is another great Jalapeno Chicken recipe by Weight Watchers. It's out of the 2000 "Day by Day" cookbook. It had 3 points per serving on the old program. I have done both blender and fine chopping and they are both great. I find the extra bits and pieces by chopping instead of blending adds a great crunch to the dish and makes it look outstanding. Hope you enjoy and happy eating!""

Excellent grilled chicken! Really tasty and just the right amount of spiciness; very light actually. We all loved the way this chicken turned out. It will be a repeat. Thank you!

We loved everything about this delicious chicken! I took out the jalapeno seeds so it wouldn't be too hot for the kids. I chopped all the stuff by hand and we loved the crunch. Marinated it the full 8 hours and that really added lots of flavor into the chicken. A do it again very soon for us!

This chicken was awesome! Loved how much flavor was in the chicken. I used skinless chicken thighs and cut the recipe in half, using agave nectar instead of honey, with great results. I love to grill so I will be making these often throughout the summer. Thank you for sharing another winner with us Teresa! Linda

Delicious grilled chicken -- the marinade really added great flavor to the chicken. I scaled the recipe down for two people and marinated the chicken overnight. Served it alongside some roasted new potatoes and a salad. A really great meal -- one I'll be making again.

Outstanding! I used thighs because I like them better than breasts, and I used the chopping method.
