Picante Chicken

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend.  We took baby on his first trip to the zoo this weekend.  Today, is going to be a lazy relaxing day at home and for relaxing days I don't always enjoy spending hours slaving over a hot oven so I'm posting an easy dish, great for lazy days (I've also tried this in a crockpot and it works great.) This is one of those dishes my mom made when I was growing up that I just loved. I still love it and I'm not sure why I don't cook it more often because it is ridiculously easy.

Picante Chicken
  • 4 Chicken breasts
  • 1 jar Picante Sauce
  • 1 lb cheese, Monterey Jack, Mozzarella, and Cheddar all taste great. I used pepper Jack.
Heat oven to 375°F. Pound chicken breast flat. Using half of the cheese, cut the cheese into strips. Lay strips evenly onto chicken breasts

Roll Up Chicken
Pour small amount of Picante Sauce into bottom of 8” x 8” cooking dish. Place the rolled chicken in dish. Pour Picante sauce over chicken. Cook for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly.  Grate remaining cheese and sprinkle on chicken. Heat for 5 more minutes, until cheese is bubbly.

I like to serve with Tortillas chips to eat all the extra cheesy goodness in the pan.

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
