Prepared this for dinner tonight. Cooked the chicken breast to a temperature of 160 degrees and it turned out moist and juicy. As others have mentioned the glaze is slightly sweet with a punch. Yummy! Used white balsamic vinegar and also added more scallions. Otherwise, it is a little bland.

I didn't know what kind of flavor to expect from the chicken but the ingredients sounded interesting. To my surprise it came out as a sweet and sour sauce, but 100x's better than the glop that is served at the restaurants. I brought leftovers for co-workers to try and they are requesting the recipe.

I made the chicken and quinoa last night. It was a HIT!!! The chicken was so delicious, salty and sweet with a little heat. Perfect combination. The kids LOVED it. And the quinoa was better than we expected. The white wine vinegar added a little punch that was needed. I added more green onions because I am Cajun :D

This was quick and easy. The hot pepper jelly (at least my trader joe's version) was not too spicy. it was more like sweet and sour. The pepper and pea saute on the side was also super easy and good. My husband, who is always skeptical of quinoa, actually like this recipe.

I was a bit unsure the family would go for this - but everyone cleaned their plates! Will make again - great on a weeknight when time is tight.

Made exactly by the recipe. Very good. Didn't use all the sauce as it might have been too sweet. Will definitely make it again.

This was fantastic. I made a few minor adjustments for flavor. I used more green onion in the quinoa and 1/2 of the cooking liquid was low sodium chicken broth. I also kicked up the pepper jelly just a bit by adding about 1 tsp of sriracha sauce.

Easy & delicious! Loved the heat & sweetness from the sauce. What a nice combination with the quinoa. The almonds gave the quinoa a nice crunch. Will definitely add this to my favorite recipes. I followed the recipe exactly except I returned the chicken to the pan to give it a nice coating of the sauce & spooned extra sauce on the chicken when I served it.
