Honey Garlic Jalapeno Chicken

Lately, I’ve been trying to do the whole meal-prep thing. Some weeks it’s a success and other weeks I’m just like ” Bump it!” This past week I decided to use chicken for that week’s meal-prep. Only one problem….

I didn’t have any ingredients to use other than spices. Fortunately I spied some jalapenos I purchased earlier in the week. I did some research and saw some recipes using jalapenos and decided to try to do my own version. This is something different for me, so I hope you like it!
