Recipe Tips

  • Easy Substitution: If you don't have Cheddar cheese on hand, you can substitute an equal amount of shredded Monterey Jack or a Mexican cheese blend.
  • Recipe Note: For a saucier dish, substitute a 24-ounce jar Pace® Picante Sauce for the 16-ounce jar.
  • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.

    For Zestier Chicken...

    This is a good, quick meal however we found the chicken really demanded some attention in the "zing" department. Alternative: Use about 8 ounces of medium Pace Picante sauce as a marinade. Pierce chicken breasts several times with a fork, place in a zip-lock bag with the Picante sauce. Seal bag and marinade 4 hours or longer, up to over night. When preparing the dish, add about 1/4 cup more water to the remaining 8 oz of Picante (or buy the 24 oz jar to start with). If corn doesn't suit you, substitute "French cut" green beans.

    Picante Chicken & Rice Bake

    The family enjoyed this dish. I added a cup of black beans, and I only went with a half-cup of rice (3/4th cup seemed a little too much). The kids put crushed tortilla chips on top of the portion that was put on their plate. As already stated, recipe is super-easy. I will certainly make it again.

    Picante Chicken & Rice Bake

    I was serving fresh corn on the cob, so I subbed a can of drained and rinsed black beans. Yummy!
