This one comes to my from one of my husbands co workers, Patrick. He gave it to me several years ago. I had forgotten about it until a few days ago I was standing in front of an open pantry door, waiting for some inspiration, with little motivation. One of those days when you just don't want to deal with cooking, but you gotta eat. We all have them. I saw a jar of picante sauce that had been in there so long it sort of became completely unnoticed. (hope that makes sense) Then it hit me... Patrick! That chicken! Cool. Exactly what I needed, something easy and delicious. So I grabbed a can of cream of chicken soup along with it and had dinner started in no time at all.
So, in honor of Patrick, here an easy dinner idea.
4 or 5 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 16 ounce jar picante sauce
1 can cream of chicken soup
I cut the breasts in half so they will cook more evenly.
Salt and pepper chicken and place in crock pot.
Mix the picante sauce and soup together and pour over chicken. Stir it and cook until done.
4 to 5 hours on high is what I do.
It is even tastier the next day, if it lasts that long.
