Do you love spicy food? I sure do, so this Spicy Molasses Chicken is right up my alley. It is VERY simple to make, and it is pretty darn hot as written. If you want to reduce the heat, remove the seeds and ribs from the peppers before slicing them, or leave out the jalapenos completely and enjoy it that way. Serve with a cold beer or glass of iced tea at the ready,!Print
Whisk together olive oil, soy sauce, molasses, sugar, and garlic powder. Stir in jalapeno slices. Add chicken, and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or up to 8 hours.
Spray a large skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Add chicken to hot skillet, and cook about 8 minutes per side, or until cooked through. (These would also be great grilled!)
This dish might be too spicy for kids, so you could leave out the jalapenos and still have tasty molasses chicken!
