This dish will help you get rid of some of that pepper jelly you’re always getting as gifts (or the pepper jelly you made yourself that you can’t seem to unload). Maybe the stuff would be in greater demand if it came with a recipe like this one.


  • 1 cup pepper jelly
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 2 cups


  1. Preheat the broiler with the broiler pan about 4 inches from the heat.
  2. Whisk the pepper jelly and orange juice together and set aside. Combine the flour, Creole seasoning, and salt in a wide bowl. Dust (don’t dredge!) the chicken tenders with the seasoned flour.
