Relax...20 minutes, 4 ingredients and one skillet is all you need to make this zesty chicken dish.


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 3/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 2 cups long grain white rice, prepared according to package directions (about 6 cups)


  • Tips

    • 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.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides.

  • Step 2

    Stir the picante sauce in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Serve the chicken and sauce with the rice.
