Picante Chicken and Peppers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PanNan

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!
