This Picante Chicken recipe is a regular in our household. Not only do we love chicken, we’re crazy wild about Picante sauce. I made egg omelet breakfast burritos not long ago and they were good without Picante sauce, but outstanding when the red deliciousness was added.
This Picante chicken recipe is extremely easy – almost as easy as it is delicious. I’m certain it’ll become a favorite in your house as well.
Yield: 4 servings
4 chicken breast halves (boneless and skinless)
1 16 oz jar Pace Picante Sauce
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon mustard
Salt and Pepper
fresh cilantro, optional
Salt and pepper the chicken and place it into a greased baking dish.
Combine the Picante sauce, the brown sugar, and the mustard. Pour the sauce mixture over the chicken. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for about 35 minutes – or until chicken juices run clear. Serve a little fresh cilantro on the side and/or snip a little over the picante chicken.
Dinner Idea: Serve the picante chicken with fresh corn on the cob and rice or a tossed salad and hominy.
