Cherry Jalapeño Chicken

This recipe is Whole30, Paleo, Gluten, and Dairy Free.

My Apricot Chicken is one of the most popular recipes on the blog so I decided to try something new with this Cherry Jalapeño Chicken and I must say it is my favorite now! The jalapeño is mild but feel free to kick it up by adding more. There is just something so special about a bite full of spicy and sweet and this chicken with it's crispy tangy skin will be your families favorite too!


6-8 chicken thighs, with skin & bone
11.5 oz black cherry jam, sugar free
1 large jalapeño, minced, leave seeds if you want extra heat
1 tbsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup ketchup, unsweetened, I like Noble Made
2 tbsp coconut aminos
