Chili-Spiced Chicken Breasts

"Spicing up dinnertime at her house in Lockney, Texas is a snap for Stacy Nutt when she bakes this zippy chicken dish. The mix of chili powder, jalapeno and cayenne pepper perks up the poultry perfectly. 'I serve it over couscous--tiny pasta grains. But you could also use rice, other pasta or potatoes,' she notes."
