tablespoons lime juice
tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Heat closed medium-size contact grill for 5 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle chicken with chili powder, cumin, garlic pepper and salt. Place chicken on grill. Close grill. Grill 6 to 8 minutes or until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.

To serve, spoon warm jelly mixture over chicken.
As you might guess from its name, jalapeño jelly adds a jalapeño flavor to foods and can be made from green or red chilies. It varies in spiciness, but unlike salsa, it is smooth in texture. Look for bottles or jars of jalapeño jelly in the same aisle as the salsas at your supermarket.
