It's so easy to create quick and tasty dishes with chicken. I created this one night when I had peppers that needed to be used up. I needed something quick, and to please the family there had to be some heat. We use medium or hot picante sauce, but you could use mild.

I made this last night and it was AWESOME! I did make a minor change, I used fresh pico de gallo instead of picante sauce. I also added more garlic. It had some bite to it and we loved it!
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt, to taste (I use SeasonAll)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 onion
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 yellow bell pepper
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 cup picante sauce (your favorite - home made or store bought like Pace - the heat of this sauce determines the heat of)
