Spicy and Delicious Asian Jalapeno Chicken recipe

We all know there’s 101 ways to cook chicken, however I have to admit that this way is pretty tasty!  Now, I will warn you that if your jalapenos are spicy, the meal will be a bit *bitey*.  However it really does give you a way to use some fresh ingredients when you have an abundance of them in the summer time!  I really loved how this turned out and I would even serve this over some white rice the next time I make it.  :)  ENJOY!
