My husband used to claim this entree as his specialty until I made it and discovered how quick and easy it is. Our two sons love the juicy chicken while my husband and I enjoy the twist that brown sugar and mustard give the picante sauce.


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) picante sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • Hot cooked rice, optional


  1. Place chicken in a greased shallow 2-qt. baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the picante sauce, brown sugar and mustard; pour over chicken.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 30-35 minutes or a thermometer reads 170°. Serve with rice if desired.
