Recipe by CookingLaura
I took a que from Rachel Ray's Hot Pepper Chicken Under a brick. Minus the brick. I then smothered it with mushrooms, onions, cheese, and avocados. It makes a delicious spicy dinner.

Awesome recipe, however, we found it abit too spicy for us. I only added 1 tsp red pepper flakes, next time I'll do 1/2 tsp & only 1/2 Tbsp jalapeno juice. We also found it a tad salty so I'll cut that also. I found I only need 1/2 cup of broth, we prefer less vs more sauce on stuff. Regardless we enjoyed this dish, thanks for sharing.
- 2 chicken breasts, boneless skinless
- 4 tablespoons dry rub seasoning, I use McCormick Grillmates chicken rub
- 2 -3 tablespoons olive oil, I like the mild tasting, not extra virgin
- 3 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
- 1 tablespoon jalapeno juice (from the jarred, pickled jalapenos)
- 1 -2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 cup mushroom, Sliced
- 1 medium sweet onion, Sliced
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 3⁄4 cup chicken stock
- salt and pepper
- 1 avocado, sliced
- 1⁄2 cup mozzarella-provolone cheese blend
Directions See How It's Made
- Generously Spinkle chicken with the chicken rub, salt, and pepper on both sides.
- Combine the olive oil, mustard, jalapeno juice, and red pepper flakes and brush over both sides of chicken breasts.
- Cook Chicken in Skillet on medium high until cooked through. (If your chicken is thick it can be finished in the oven at 350º F. I use a meat thermometer, let it get to 165ºF.)
- After removing chicken from the skillet, add the onion, garlic, and mushrooms and saute until caramelized. Then Salt and pepper.
- Add chicken stock, a little at a time, allowing the veggies to soak it up and get juicy. Add just enough make a really thick sauce. (should be more veggies than sauce.)
- Top chicken with Avocados, a little salt, the mushrooms and onions, then the cheese. You can put under the broiler to melt cheese but I just let the heat from the meat and veggies melt it.
- Enjoy! I like it with a baked sweet potato and butter.
