This picante chicken made in the crockpot is easy and you can make it as hot and spicy as you like. Serve over rice or noodles for a great meal.

3 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (Could use any parts of the chicken)
1/4 cup picante sauce
1 small onion, chopped
1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chilis (I used the original)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 (10.5 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup chopped green and red peppers (could use all green or all red or hot peppers)
few drops hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Place chicken pieces in bottom of crockpot.  Mix together remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. Cook 6 to 7 hours on low until chicken is done or 3 to 4 hours on high.  Makes 4 servings depending on amount of chicken you use.  Enjoy!

  1. Are those green and red bell peppers or jalapeño peppers?

  2. Made this. Was very good. Try adding sum grated cheese on top of it on your plate…tastes even better.

  3. This sounds like an easy and tasty sounding meal to put together.
