Tips  

Hot pepper or jalapeño jelly has a spicy-sweet flavor. Look for hot pepper jelly near the other jellies in the grocery store.

Add leftover chicken to a salad for lunch the next day.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
