Very quick and easy. A checker at the grocery store told me about this one. Serve on a hot bed of rice if desired.

I doubled this recipe and used my crockpot. 4 partially frozen breasts were jucy and delicious after 4 hours on low. I served it with brown rice and roasted zucchini. This is a recipe I will use again and again I am sure. Read More

I've also made this in a slow cooker with still frozen chicken breasts on low for about 3-4 hours then shredded up the chicken with the picante sauce for a yummy chicken taco type salad or as someone else mentioned chicken burritos. My husband likes to put the leftovers on nachos. Read More

I have made this chicken without this recipe and wanted to leave a comment. I cook mine in the oven instead of stove top. Use frozen chicken breast (in the bag) pour salsa on top cover with foil cook for 1 hour at 350. NEVER dry when cooked this way. If you want a little extra flavor season with a little chili powder cumin and garlic before adding salsa. Not necessary but adds some great flavor. I like to slice the chicken and use for fajitas. So easy. For an Italian version use pasta sauce to cook chicken and serve over noodles. Definitely a great way to cook a great meal especially when you're short on time. Read More

Pretty darn good. I chunked the chicken and put the dish over mexican rice and added a little sour cream on top. Just enough kick. Will make again. Read More

This was delicious. The chicken turned out spicy and tender. I used 4 frozen chicken breasts and two jars of hot picante sauce. When the chicken was ready I shredded it. We then prepared it taco bar style with soft tortillas lettuce sour cream and shredded cheese. We'll definitely be making this again and again! Read More

I'm a college student so this was very cheap and easy to make. I ended up chopping the chicken and mixing the whole mixture with a couple tablespoons of ranch dressing to use with salad to make a Santa Fe Salad...delicious Read More
