Recipe by Denise

Another family favorite that is spicy and out of this world! Jalapenos really heat up this wonderful dish. Serve with yellow rice and Tabasco on the side!

Wow, what a great way to fix chicken! Lots of spicy flavor, and really great over the rice! The chicken was very moist. I used just 2 chicken breasts, but kept the piquant sauce the same, so there was lots of sauce for spooning over the rice. Thanks for this recipe, Denise, this will be served often at our house! :o)
