These are yummy and have the right amount of heat that didn't burn my mouth. I used https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/hot-pepper-jelly in this recipe. I made our drumsticks in the oven and they turned out good.

Awesomely delicious! I used Stonewall Kitchen's red jalapeno pepper jelly which is a local favorite. No one used the reserved jelly mixture so we get to have more!!!! Will definitely make these again.

This worked fine in the oven instead of on the grill. Jalapeno-lime is an interesting combination and is very tasty! A nice change from barbecue sauce!

Outstanding! It doesn't get much easier than this. I cut up a whole chicken rather than just drumsticks and this was delicious. I will definitely make these again.
